Our event venues on Sydney Harbour are inspired settings for a range of events, from corporate functions, commercial shoots and sporting displays through to art exhibitions and live music.

We offer indoor and outdoor event venues across three of our locations: Cockatoo Island, North Head Sanctuary in Manly and Headland Park in Mosman.

Cockatoo Island

From gritty industrial spaces on the waterfront through to striking sandstone buildings that date back to the convict era, Cockatoo Island offers iconic venues for different budgets, requirements and occasions.

UPDATE: The event venues at Cockatoo Island are fully booked from January to July 2020. Seeking to hold an event during this period? Check out the other amazing event venues offered by the Harbour Trust (below).

Headland Park

Captivate eventgoers with a venue that marries atmosphere with historical intrigue. Built for the Australian Navy, the T5 Camouflage Tank at Georges Heights, Headland Park is one of the most remarkable secret relics of Australia’s WWII infrastructure.

North Head Sanctuary

Located at the northern entrance to Sydney Harbour – just a short drive from Manly Beach – North Head Sanctuary offers distinct event venues that harken back to the era when the site formed part of the nation’s coastal defence system.
