Foster, Taree & Diamond Beach, NSW

There’s something truly unforgettable about a wedding by the ocean: waves sparkling in the sunlight, the exhilarating tang of salty air and the seemingly endless expanse of sea and sky.

Or, would you prefer yours to be an eco-friendly celebration held under a cool, green canopy created by trees of a sub-tropical rainforest? The NSW mid-north coast has so many locations perfect for a glorious beachside celebration or a romantic bush wedding – possibly none more so than the Manning River Valley’s Foster, Taree and glorious six kilometre long Diamond Beach.

From the stunning hinterland to the very edge of the ocean, there are venues to suit every wedding day dream. Exchange your vows in a bushland retreat, or on the private beach of a resort that offers delightful indoor and outdoor settings, and a wide variety of flexible wedding packages. And, where better to honeymoon than the stunningly beautiful Manning River Valley?

Your guests will certainly love this gorgeous region. Activities include bush and beach walks, water sports, fishing, and horse riding – and those that prefer a more leisurely pace will enjoy the art galleries, shopping, fabulous eateries, cruises, and the option of spending some serious time by the pool. 

Accommodation ranges from resorts, hotels and motels, to B&Bs, holiday parks, and camping. And, if you were concerned about the availability of wedding service providers, don’t be… the region has more than its fair share and you’ll find that you’re spoiled for choice.

Accessing the beauty of this region is simple. An easy drive of approximately three and a half hours from Sydney, and you’ll be in the heart of Manning River country with all its many attractions. Visit or for a wealth of useful information.
