Beautifully landscaped gardens and fairy-lit entertaining areas create distinct, welcoming spaces for couples to grab a picnic rug and connect, or for family and friends to joyfully gather over a game of cricket, boules, table tennis or giant Jenga.

It’s the perfect marriage of country romance and eclectic elegance, creating relaxed ambience at every turn.

As a wedding planner, Figbird Cottage was a dream to work with. Their grounds are so versatile and their marquee is just beautiful. Everything is super easy to style which makes it a dream for couples looking to make a venue their own. Lisa worked really hard to make my couple's day come true. 
Such a beautiful venue - highly recommend!

- Rachel

Figbird cottage is an absolutely stunning site, and it was the perfect venue for our wedding. The grounds were stunning, the accomodation beautiful (and so convenient) and Lisa went above and beyond to make sure our wedding day was perfect. You will be glad you booked this venue.

- Jessamyn

My husband & I got married at Figbird in April 2021. Not only is the venue absolutely beautiful & charming, but so is Lisa. Lisa made the lead up to the big day seamless & there was never anything that was too big an ask. She helped in every way she could before & on the big day. Nothing was a problem & she was always calm, happy & accommodating. I would highly recommend this venue to any brides out there looking around. Lisa is very open & upfront about what is included, there are options for add-ons, local vendors are fantastic & the setting is just beautiful for a fun wedding. Outdoor areas give you loads to play with & the marquee is just what you would be looking for. Thank you Figbird for giving us such a memorable & special day.

- Tayla

We had the time of our lives at our wedding at Figbird Cottage! The owners Lisa & Mike are the kindest, most genuine lovely people in the world! They have a beautiful property & onsite accommodation! We can not thank the Figbird Cottage team enough for having us & we can not recommend them highly enough!

- Courtney

These incredible people have created the most beautiful wedding venue. Lisa was so kind to us throughout the whole process & made sure everything was perfect for our big day. From keeping us in the loop on covid restrictions including a lengthy phone call she made to NSW health to ensure she knew exactly what we could & couldn't do, to seeing her tend to the beautiful gardens the morning of the wedding Lisa went above & beyond for us. Aside from her service the venue itself is absolutely beautiful. The grass is lush, the marquee is stunning, the gardens are beautiful & the photo shoot spots are endless. If you are looking for a wedding venue on the South Coast I highly recommend Figbird. It was perfect for our wedding & would be for you too!

- Tenille

My partner and I recently got married here. A beautiful location run by wonderful and friendly people. Organising a wedding during covid was difficult but Lisa did everything she could to make it as easy as possible for us and helped us through every stage.

- Jacob

What a gorgeous little wedding venue....however there's plenty of open spaces too. When I married my couple there as a celebrant, the owners were amazing and so attentive to all the guests. A definite choice for your wedding with country charm.

Gordon and I would like to thank you for such an amazing night at Figbird Cottage. It was a crazy time and so happy that you were able to accommodate and modify (at short notice) for Cherise & Daniel's wedding. We were blessed with beautiful weather and you helped make this a very special and fun night! There has been many wonderful comments from family and guests how beautiful your venue is and being able to have everything outdoors turned out to be such a magical experience!
