Lindesay, Darling Point Venue Hire

A city oasis, where history meets harbour views.

Welcome to Sydney’s best kept secret, situated in leafy Darling Point, just a short drive from the city.

Lindesay is an elegant 1830s mansion with manicured gardens and spectacular views across Sydney harbour. Built in 1834, this was the first house in Darling Point and the first in Australia to be designed in the Gothic Revival style.

The house is richly decorated in 19th century style, and offers both impressive interiors and inspiring gardens for wedding and event hire, while also guaranteeing exclusive access for the duration of your event. Arrive in splendour around the circular drive and make it an event to remember at this beautiful historic Sydney venue.
