Celebrate your special day against the iconic backdrop of Sydney Harbour! Located on the Hunters Hill peninsula, Woolwich offers sweeping harbour views that encompass the cityscape, Harbour Bridge and Cockatoo Island.

Plus, our parklands at Woolwich represent a rare opportunity for lucky couples and their guests to arrive at their wedding venue by boat. How often do you get to say that!

The Harbour Trust offers three wedding venues at Woolwich. Goat Paddock and Horse Paddock are tranquil expanses on either side of Woolwich Dock – a sandstone dry dock built in 1901 and used for ship repairs during both World Wars. Meanwhile, Woolwich Lookout is perched above our heritage dock and offers an elevated harbour view.
