A BRIEF OF THE DUNES OCEAN GROVE
Located in the expansive Ocean Grove Beach, with an all- year round picturesque ocean view, the Dunes Ocean Grove represents one of the best Geelong wedding venues for private, intimate estate weddings.
During the year of 2018 and 2019, the Dunes Ocean Grove was rebuilt and now they deliver exceptional weddings with their sister venue At the Heads in Barwon Heads.
On the coastline of Ocean Grove, The Dunes Ocean Grove creates a light and breezy atmosphere in summer and warm and cozy atmosphere in winter. As couples can hold ceremony and reception in one site, in my sight, The Dunes is a comprehensive place with gorgeous view and friendly service for weddings in Geelong all year round.
