With breathtaking panoramic views over Newcastle and some of the best photographic opportunities our city has to offer, Fort Scratchley is an idyllic location for your wedding day.

Steeped in history, Fort Scratchley is situated at the eastern end of Newcastle on the site where convicts created Australia’s first coal mine in 1801. With multiple ceremony and reception locations this site is sure to inspire any romantic.

The Fort Scratchley Function Centre offers a contemporary, light filled space with views over the Newcastle Ocean Baths and Cowrie Hole. Also featuring a timber deck, ideal as an alfresco option and for soaking up the ocean air.
