Bawley Bush Cottages has created a lakeside function room and accommodation facilities for you to use as the perfect destination for a memorable celebration.

Located at Bawley Point between Ulladulla and Batemans Bay on the NSW South Coast, the Bush Cottages venue provides catering facilities, function space and accommodation: The Cockatoo Room is a multi-purpose unlicensed celebration space for self-catered or contract-catered weddings. The 100m2 function room with 30m2 foyer, 40m2 verandah and 20m2 pergola are designed so you can use it and the commercial standard kitchen adjoining to tailor the wedding to your own needs: you choose the caterers, decorators, celebrants, musicians you want and can afford; using our indoor and outdoor spaces you create the celebration just how you want it; and then you invite the guests you want to share your special event.

The wedding function room is surrounded by coastal forest, lawns and gardens and overlooks Lake Willunga 125m away. Levelled and gently sloping grounds with lake views have been chosen by many brides and grooms as the perfect place for their outdoor wedding followed by an indoor reception.
A typical wedding at Bawley Bush Cottages books our entire property from Friday to Sunday and your guests stay in our cottages. That way everyone who comes gets to fully socialise with those they want to. Those we can’t fit in our accommodation (about 30) can camp on site or stay nearby in other cottages.
Dining facilities are limited to 80 people seated and cocktail-style functions up to 180 using the several indoor and outdoor spaces available. We have ample parking.
