The perfect wedding venue

Situated on the scenic Ballina Byron Coast, the Ballina Island Motor Inn has over two acres of landscaped tropical gardens making it the perfect wedding venue. We have created a special wedding garden on the property ideal for the bridal couple to exchange their vows.

It's everything you've imagined as the perfect wedding venue. A delightful setting for your ceremony, photographs and reception as well as professional and attentive staff, delicious cuisine and a dedicated wedding coordinator to attend to your every need.

Our trademark is providing the highest calibre of service from our dedicated team of event co-ordinators and chefs who will do their utmost to ensure your event is memorable for all the right reasons.

Although many couples choose to have their reception in the Island Function Room which can seat up to 110 guests, others select our alternative choice of a beautifully decorated marquee in the wedding garden. This provides a beautiful setting for up to 100 guests for a seated function or 120 for a cocktail party.


Smaller weddings can enjoy the ambience of The Terrace, our licenced restaurant that seats up to 100. It is a relaxed space ideally suited for groups of around twenty who are happy to share the space with our other diners. The entire restaurant can also be booked for a wedding but this will need to be discussed with the Events Manager.

We also have a covered courtyard that is an extension of the bar and overlooks the pool area. This lends itself well to stand up cocktail parties or for something a little different you could have a a gourmet BBQ, lamb on the spit or set up a burger bar and have our chef cook delicacies for your guests to build their own burger.

To discuss all your needs call our Events Manager on (02) 6686 8866 or (02) 6686 8866, Alternatively EMAIL US with your requirements.
