Planning a Winter Wedding?

We love a winter wedding in Newcastle! It's the perfect time of year to take advantage of the warm sunshine and mild temperatures.

The grounds of Apollo are the ideal backdrop for a gorgeous winter wedding. The rustic bushland looks surrounding the gardens makes a great location for photos while staying close to your guests. The rotunda is a great spot for the wedding ceremony as it's lovely to be outside in the warm winter sun.

The Apollo function rooms face the pool and outdoor areas so they have beautiful views and plenty of room for guests to mingle and socialise. And with 95 rooms available for accomodation, it's just a short walk for overnight guests to hit the hay after a long day.

We want to see more weddings here at Apollo in winter so we're offering extra special incentives to encourage you to book a winter wedding in Newcastle! How about a $500 bonus towards decorating your venue?

We've teamed up with some amazing local suppliers to help decorate the venue in a style that suits you best.
