BREATHTAKING VIEWS STEEPED IN HISTORY

With breathtaking panoramic views over Newcastle and some of the best photographic opportunities our City has to offer, Fort Scratchley is an idyllic location for your wedding day.

 

CEREMONY
Start your special day in style atop Newcastle’s most picturesque location which features panoramic views of Newcastle, the coastline and the harbour, making it the perfect backdrop and unforgettable venue for you and all your guests. Exclusive access is available from 4pm.

Fort Scratchley is not only a great location for your wedding ceremony, it is also ideal for your wedding reception, meaning your guests don’t have to travel between locations.

 

RECEPTION
Located just outside the Fort walls, the Function Centre at Fort Scratchley Historic Site is a contemporary, light filled space.

Running along the northern side of the function centre with views over the Cowrie Hole an adjoining deck provides an ideal alfresco option for you and your guests to enjoy pre–dinner drinks and canapés.

Accommodating 120 banquet style or 200 cocktail, the Function Centre offers high ceilings and uninterrupted vision so that the bridal table can be seen from all corners of the room. The fixed dance floor is an added convenience so that as soon as those formalities are over, you and your partner can have your first dance as a married couple, then dance the night away with your family, friends and loved ones.

The Barracks, within Fort Scratchley grounds, offers a stunning and unique option for your Reception and can accommodate a cocktail wedding of up to 120 people.

Barracks North and South are connected by a small corridor, and offer an intimate space with loads of atmosphere. In addition, the Barracks have a connecting verandah offering incredible sunset views over the harbour and city skyline.

SOME KIND WORDS

“As far as my new wife and I are concerned this is the best location in Newcastle to get married. The iconic buildings in the Fort make for an amazing backdrop in addition to the amazing views of all of Newcastle. The Fort is also closed to the public to ensure maximum privacy.” – Sophie and Ataman

 

Covid-19 Information:
While we are all hopeful that the current COVID – 19 pandemic passes very quickly, for some of our couples, their wedding will be held in a period where Public Health Orders will have an impact on their planning and guest capacities. Our COVIDsafe trained Event Coordinators can guide you through this tricky time, to ensure everyone’s safety is the priority. Working with our catering team, we have the flexibility to respond to constant change, while delivering quality experiences to our guests in a safe way.
