The Dunes Ocean Grove


Nestled in the seaside town of Ocean Grove on the beautiful Bellarine Peninsula, The Dunes is a truly spectacular venue overlooking the Surf Beach and is the ultimate beachside space for those wishing to celebrate the next chapter of their journey in stunning surrounds.

Be wowed by the building itself, which has a contemporary feel and is made from natural materials. The floor to ceiling windows allows an abundance of light and combined with the beautiful façade creates a cinematic experience that is ideal for your wedding backdrop – watch the waves crash in or the silhouettes of surfers as the sun goes down.

Catering options.

The Dunes have an experienced and passionate culinary team who have developed a menu that showcases fresh, local and sustainable produce.

Their menu style is focused on ‘feasting’ – a collaborative style of dining, and a great mix between cocktail and a traditional sit-down service. Roving canapés served on arrival, and then guests are invited to sit for a share style main.


While there is no on-site accommodation, as a special offer for The Dunes wedding couples and their guests, they have teamed up with Ocean Edge Holiday Rentals to offer some spectacular holiday homes for your wedcation. With properties that sleep 2 – 13 guests dotted all over the Bellarine and Surf Coast, there are plenty of options to choose from.

Features and benefits.

The Dunes offers ease and style when it comes to your wedding planning.

Ceremonies can be hosted in the Native Dunes, a beautiful grassy space atop the sand dunes while being surrounded by native flora and fauna, with panoramic views of the open ocean. Alternatively, should the weather be inclement you can use their contemporary indoor space.

The Dunes space itself is located above the surf beach and the views out over the horizon are breathtaking as you celebrate into the night. The natural surfaces will complement a multitude of styling options, allowing you to personalise the space to suit your style.

But what sets The Dunes apart is their dedicated and passionate Event Team who are alongside you through every aspect of your planning and day, so you can relax and enjoy yourself as they go above and beyond to help you execute your most special day.

Cost: Minimum spend – $24,o00 (February and March) $21,000 (November, December, April) $18,000 (May to October)

Whether you are looking for a black tie affair, or a dance floor for the DJ to set on fire, the team at The Dunes will work with you to create your perfect day.
