Call us lazy if you must, but any opportunity to avoid a late-night taxi/bus/ferry/train ride is something we support wholeheartedly. Plus if you’ve got friends and family travelling from afar, being able to offer them on-site accommodation is a huge bonus (and an easy way to earn additional karmic brownie points).

Below we’ve gathered some of our favourite wedding venues that offer onsite accommodation across Australia. Sweet dreams lovers.
