Owing to their natural beauty, distinctive heritage buildings and stunning water views, our network of extraordinary places on Sydney Harbour are an opportunity for you to hold your next event in a truly unique setting...

From landscaped parklands surrounded by coastal bushland through to gritty industrial spaces on the waterfront, we offer iconic venues for different budgets, requirements and occasions.

Event venues

Our event venues 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 on Sydney Harbour: Cockatoo Island, North Head Sanctuary in Manly and Headland Park in Mosman.

Cockatoo Island venue update: Our calendar is full of great events and exciting projects! So at this time, the Harbour Trust is unable to accept any more major event bookings for Cockatoo Island from November 2023 to December 2023.

Commercial activities

If you are seeking to undertake a commercial activity at one of our locations, you will need to secure the approval of the Harbour Trust...

A commercial activity includes (but is not limited to) an activity where the primary purpose is to make a profit; an activity where an individual (e.g. a sports coach, tour guide) is remunerated for providing a service; and free-of-charge activities, tours, courses or transport offered in conjunction with a commercial product or service.
