Sunnybrae Estate

Like something out of a romantic fantasy novel, Sunnybrae is a dazzling heritage-listed garden estate, perfect for weddings and other special occasions. With its three unique function spaces as well as several breathtaking locations on its extensive grounds, this venue provides the perfect setting for your wedding ceremony and reception. With over three decades’ experience in hosting weddings, Sunnybrae offers the highest quality of service and prides itself on its outstanding food and wine packages. Just 12 minutes’ drive from the CBD, it is one of Adelaide’s best kept secrets.


Back in the 1880s, the estate was privately owned and used as farmland. Now, the buildings have been beautifully renovated and the grounds, spanning 8 acres of magnificent gardens and picturesque backdrops, are impeccably maintained by the family that has owned and operated the business for over 30 years.

Noteworthy Features

Sunnybrae offers a choice of three picturesque ceremony areas, including their elegant Rose Garden and Wisteria Arch, the charming peppertree Gazebo or Palm Garden, and two new ceremony locations, the Walk and the Landing.  Each location suits guest numbers ranging from 20-300. In case of bad weather, Sunnybrae will provide a complimentary undercover location for your ceremony which can comfortably accommodate up to 200 people. The starting price for ceremonies is $1,300.

With its beautiful heritage buildings and majestic garden areas, the photo opportunities offered within the grounds of Sunnybrae are plentiful. With its classic winery-feel setting, palm and rose gardens, rustic brick walls, gorgeous interiors and lush grass, this venue is a dream for every couple and their photographer.

Sunnybrae offers a choice of five different wedding packages for The Pavillion and The Coach House.
