Lindesay, Darling Point, Sydney: Venue Hire

When elegance is an essential for creating a sense of occasion, Lindesay at Darling Point in Sydney is the perfect location.

Make memories to last a lifetime at this elegant 1830s mansion with sweeping views across Sydney Harbour from a private garden and sandstone courtyard. Interior spaces include the elegant dining room and atmospheric cellar. This is the perfect setting for wedding and naming ceremonies, private parties, garden parties, corporate meetings and luncheons. Lindesay is also a favourite location for photographers, producers and film makers.

You will arrive in splendour around a circular drive, overlooked by the house. Step onto the sheltered sandstone courtyard that gives way to a private garden overlooking Sydney Harbour. Sneak into the parterre garden or glassed gazebo for a moment of reverie and reflection. Lindesay was the first house to be built at Darling Point by the Colonial Treasurer Campbell Drummond Riddell in 1834 and named after the Acting Governor, Lieutenant Patrick Lindesay, who reserved the land for Riddell – his friend and fellow Scotsman. The architecture of Lindesay is one of the first domestic examples of Gothic Revival in Australia.
