South Coast NSW Wedding Guest Accommodation

The Original Gold Rush Colony has its own unique onsite accommodation, set on 13 acres and surrounded by the Mogo State Forest. Just perfect for your wedding group.

Stroll back in time into comfortably appointed country Cabins and Bunkhouses, all with ensuites, accommodating up to 148 guests.

Our accommodation offers the perfect opportunity for guests to stay onsite at The Original Gold Rush Colony after your wedding. Wedding guests and family have the opportunity to enjoy our facilities, without the worry of driving home.

The magic of the unique Australian bush setting comes into it's own at dawn and dusk when the prolific birdlife comes out of the forest and the noises of the 21st Century drift away.

Enjoy your reception fully catered for in the Diggers Rest Tavern, oozing with old world charm. The rustic timber building recreates traditional Australia, with high ceilings, timber flooring, tables and benches, roaring open fires and old fashioned hospitality.

When staying overnight the huge undercover Camp Kitchen area allows you to catch up with your guests over breakfast, giving you time to really get the most out of your celebrations. You may choose to disappear for your honeymoon, knowing that your guests will be experiencing a great time together, in an environment where the two families can really get to know each other.

Ask us about special arrangements for the bridal party, allowing early check in or staying prior to the wedding to get ready for the big day.

We can provide accommodation brochures for you to mail out to guests and will assist with room allocations, should you require.
