8 Extraordinary Albury Wedding Venues
This list of the top wedding venues in Albury encompasses locations that can cater to every wedding theme, from the traditional and modern to contemporary, boho and everything in between.
1. Lake Hume
Lake Hume tops our list for romantic country wedding venues. Its gentle, rolling slopes make it easy to set up for any wedding event from prenup photoshoots to the day itself. The awe-inspiring dam wall takes centre stage and adds to the magnificence of the venue without eclipsing the event.
With a surface area of more than 20,000 hectares, it is three times bigger than Sydney Harbour, which means there are plenty of beautiful wedding spots to choose from. Some of the popular spots include Apex Park (also known as The Pines), Bowna Waters Reserve, Table Top Reserve, and Lake Hume Tourist Park Beach.
Alternatively, water skiing, wakeboarding, or tube riding can add an edge of excitement to any wedding, satisfying the thrill-seeker in anyone, regardless of their experience level.
2. Murray Art Museum Albury
Contemporary art lovers who are taking their relationship to the next level should probably consider tying the knot at the Murray Art Museum Albury (MAMA). One of the most visited art venues in the region, MAMA has earned a reputation for its original, innovative exhibits featuring some of the best contemporary artists from Australia and around the world.
MAMA has a whole range of truly special and memorable wedding options and hiring their commercial spaces supports the ongoing work of the museum to showcase the best contemporary art to Albury and the whole of the Murray Region.
3. Wonga Wetlands
For couples who are birdwatchers and field naturalists, Wonga Wetlands is the perfect venue to celebrate their passion for each other (and for the birds they love!). The region has more than 350 varieties of birds, an ecosystem of billabongs and lagoons and centuries-old river red gums and scar trees that make Wonga Wetlands a haven for people who love nature. For a winter wedding, immortalise the special day with pelicans and black swans adorning the background, and spring weddings will feature hundreds of wading birds as the backdrop.
4. Albury Racing Club
Albury Racing Club is a very popular wedding venue, hosting a multitude of functions and events at the racecourse each year and you don’t need to be a horse racing enthusiast to want to be wed at this place. The sheer opulence and grandeur of the Albury Racing Club is an absolute deal clincher.
