Wedding suppliers and couples need to know the facts…

The Cairns Regional Council is now responsible for issuing permits in regards to wedding ceremonies and receptions held on a beach in the Cairns area.

The beach area is defined by the ‘area from the top of the beach right down to the spring low tide mark’.

This rule applies for all beaches between Bundaberg and the tip of Australia at Cape York.

If you are planning on having your wedding on a Cairns beach you need to apply for a permit.

To apply for a permit click here.

If you are planning on having a wedding on an island or a coral cay, then the ‘Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service’ is the body to contact to obtain a permit.

If you intend to have a ‘Low Impact Wedding Ceremony’ on a beach, the good news is you don’t need a permit at all. For more information on what criterias make up a ‘Low Impact Wedding Ceremony’ please visit
