About this vendor
Situated in the heart of Waikerie, about 200km from Adelaide; the Waikerie Hotel is a modern architectural delight. Perching itself in the town centre, you will be instantly captivated by the opulent, handcrafted stone masonry wrapping itself around the building. The incredible structure is purely a lesson in blending historical architecture with modern engineering!
Recently renovated, the Hotel pairs a stylish and contemporary charm with a versatile, adaptable space. Simply speaking, the venue allows you to hold a wedding of almost any size without sacrificing any of the designer details or losing any of that intimate ambience a wedding naturally creates.
The professional and passionate staff at the Waikerie Hotel will offer you a complete and personalised wedding experience. With a range of pre-set packages and the ability to tailor a package for your needs, the only problem you’re likely to face is which rustic, culinary delight you’d like to offer your guests!

3 things you would take on a deserted island – The biggest box of matches I could find; I sure as hell don’t want to rub two sticks together to create fire. A big sharp knife; to I could cut branches to make my bed, shelter and a spear. A boat; after all the hard work I could just jump in my boat and whizz home when I’m done with being on my own.
