Weddings and Celebrations

It is honestly the most beautiful place...

As of January 2020, we will be closing down Weddings for a time while we undertake a large building project on the Riversdale site. If you are interested in a 2022 wedding please call administration on 44222100 for enquiries.

The Arthur and Yvonne Boyd Education Centre is available to hire exclusively for weddings, celebrations, corporate events, photo shoots and other private functions. Riversdale is a unique and beautiful South Coast location for your celebration.


It is honestly the most beautiful place, we're so lucky to have it on the South Coast...

Riversdale at Bundanon Trust is stunning and private, enjoying breath-taking views down the Shoalhaven River, international prize winning Glenn Murcutt architecture, and the unparalleled original artwork of Arthur Boyd.

There are several usable spaces included as part of hire.


The Arthur and Yvonne Boyd Education Centre is a masterpiece. Designed by internationally renowned and award winning architect Glenn Murcutt (1999 RAIA Sir Zelman Cowan Award for Public Buildings and voted the most influential building in Australia in the last 25 years by Architecture Review Magazine – 2008) the Centre has sweeping views of the Shoalhaven River.

The BEC comprises a forecourt and open plan hall area, a semi-commercial kitchen, and accommodation. A perfect setting for your special event, and a wonderful place for relaxing and enjoying the properties tranquil abundance.

The Mordant Family Library

An intimate space featuring books, artwork and furniture from the Bundanon Trust Collection, the Mordant Family Library provides a great break-out space, boardroom or bridal party preparation space. The Mordant Family Library is named in honour of the support given to Bundanon by former Board Member Simon Mordant and his wife Catriona.

The Natural Amphitheater

The beautiful natural amphitheater is the jewel in Riversdale's crown. With glorious views down the Shoalhaven River, and access to power, the amphitheater is the perfect spot for wedding ceremonies, larger gatherings and outdoor concerts. There's nowhere else quite like it on the South Coast.
