Choosing a Wedding Ceremony Location

Upon being welcomed to Bedarra Island your hosts will  show you some stunning ceremony locations. You may also wish to explore and choose your own special place to say” I DO “. 

You can exchange your vows on a white sand cove in a circle of frangipanis beneath coconut palms or on majestic granite rock formations with the turquoise Coral Sea and Great Barrier Reef islands as your back drop. This is a beautiful way to create a memory that will last forever, offering stunning photo locations to capture your day. 

Best Time of Year

There is no such thing as a bad time to visit Bedarra Island. 

Winter (May through August) in the tropics has warm days and cool nights with very little chance of rain. The waters and sunsets are beautiful with the chance to sight migrating whales.

Spring (September through November) has warm days and comfortable nights. It is also peak honeymoon season so be sure to plan well in advance during this season. 

Summer (December through March) is the sultry humid season. Rain is more common at this time of year but the nights are warm, so is the water, and the skies can put on a spectacular display of electrical storms that pass quickly and end with a rainbow.
