Boasting uninterrupted water views, award-winning food and Mediterranean-inspired interiors, Ancora is a modern waterfront wedding venue on the Tweed Coast. Created by the well-known hospitality gurus behind renowned local restaurant Taverna in Kingscliff and the iconic Osteria Casuarina, Ancora has quickly established itself as one of the most unique coastal venues in Northern NSW.

Positioned with absolute waterfrontage overlooking the picturesque Terranora Inlet in Tweed Heads, Ancora is conveniently located just 10 minutes from the Gold Coast airport and 5 minutes from world-famous beaches Snapper Rocks and Rainbow Bay. Influenced by the stylish beach clubs dotted along the Mediterranean coastline, the stunning Ancora interiors make this venue a truly one-of-a-kind offering for couples looking to get married on the Tweed Coast.

Featuring hardwood timber flooring, crisp white-panelled walls and floor-to-ceiling glass windows overlooking the water, the exclusive wedding space at Ancora is airy, inviting and filled with natural light. With woven basket lighting and a statement marble bar, Ancora offers the perfect relaxed ambience for modern luxe weddings.

The adjoining garden space at Ancora provides a beautiful waterfront backdrop for an intimate outdoor ceremony – or, take a short cruise to one of the many secluded beaches nestled along the water for a truly unique setting. A covered cocktail area and intimate waterfront deck is also available for post-wedding drinks and canape hour, allowing guests to soak up the lush natural surroundings and picturesque outlook on offer.

Ancora couples and their guests can enjoy a mouth-watering food and beverage selection, with the extensive Ancora menu led by accomplished UK celebrity chef, Matt Kemp and drawing inspiration from the much-loved authentic Greek dishes enjoyed at sister restaurant Taverna. Packed with distinct Mediterranean flavours and with a focus on share style dining, the gourmet menu options include locally sourced seafood, slow cooked lamb and Taverna’s famous Byron Bay haloumi.

Wedding planning is easy at Ancora, with all-inclusive venue packages offering white European bentwood chairs, hand-crafted wooden dining tables and state of the art lighting and AV systems. A dedicated function manager and professional wedding team are also on-hand to service your day seamlessly from start to finish, allowing you to truly relax and enjoy every moment of your celebration.
Centrally located just around the corner from southern Gold Coast hot-spots Coolangatta and Kirra Beach, the prime coastal position of Ancora makes this Tweed Coast venue perfectly suited for destination weddings, with ample accommodation options, hotel blocks and beachfront resorts just minutes away.

Making waves on social media since its highly anticipated launch and recently featured on both The Urban List and The Weekend Edition, Ancora has fast become one of the most talked-about new venues on the Tweed Coast and Northern NSW. Combining a stunning coastal location and unparalleled water views with modern interiors and award-winning cuisine, the Ancora team look forward to bringing your dream wedding day to life!
