Where to Get Married in Australia
Marriage Requirements in Australia
Wedding Packages in Australia
In order to enter Australia, foreign citizens must have a valid passport and visa, or an approved Electronic Travel Authority (ETA). For additional entry requirements, consult with your Certified Destination Wedding Specialist or visit travel.state.gov (US citizens) or travel.gc.ca (Canadian citizens).
The main language spoken throughout Australia is English, so you won't have any trouble getting around while you travel.
Currency & Tipping
The Australian dollar (AUD) is the official currency of Australia. The US dollar (USD) is not accepted throughout Australia, so it's best to either bring a debit/credit card or withdraw cash from a local ATM upon arrival.
Tipping in Australia is not mandatory but always appreciated at resorts, restaurants, cafes and pubs. Small change or 10-15% of the bill is customary.

Things to Consider when Planning a Wedding in Australia
Getting married in Australia may sound dreamy, but it comes with a few challenges:
- Hotels in Australia are EP (European Plan), so your meals and drinks will be an additional cost
- The flights to Australia are longer and more expensive from most US and CA gateways
- Wedding packages in Australia are not all-inclusive, so you'll have to hire each vendor individually (i.e. florist, wedding planner, caterer, photographer, etc.)
- The overall cost of a destination wedding in Australia will more than likely be much more expensive than a destination wedding in Mexico or the Caribbean.
