Venue Hire

Sydney Observatory Marquee

High on Observatory Hill in the historic Rocks district, Sydney Observatory is housed in a beautiful heritage-listed sandstone building. Built in 1858, Sydney Observatory is Australia’s oldest observatory and one of the most significant sites in the nation’s scientific history. Recognised as an item of ‘state significance’ by the New South Wales Government, the Observatory functions as a museum and public observatory with an important role in astronomy education and public telescope viewing.

Each year during selected dates in spring and early summer we have a 20m x 10m marquee in the beautiful gardens of Sydney Observatory available for hire. The stunning view from the marquee site spans the vista between the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Anzac Bridge. The transparent marquee walls allow guests to enjoy this panorama over dinner for up to 150 guests or cocktails for 200, perfect for weddings.

The marquee is available from Monday 7 September 2020 to Sunday 13 December 2020.

Clients are welcome to contract external audiovisual suppliers for their events subject to the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences WHS requirements:
