Venue Hire

Lindesay is a much‐sought after venue by brides, being an elegant 1830s mansion with full views across manicured lawns to Sydney harbour. In the pretty garden under the marquee you can have an elegant function for up to 100 people, or alternatively the music or dining room can seat up to 20 for small intimate dinners.

Lindesay, at Darling Point, was built by the Colonial Treasurer Campbell Drummond Riddell in 1834, who purchased 17 acres reserved for him by the Acting Governor, Lieutenant Patrick Lindesay, his friend and fellow Scot, and after whom the house is presumably named.

Darling Point grew up around the grounds of Lindesay, which once swept down to the water.  It was the first house to be built on Darling Point and attracted distinguished occupants.

The house is the first domestic example of Gothic Revival in Australia, with fine interiors restored by the National Trust to represent the house of gentlemen, prominent in colonial society during the first half of the nineteenth century.

Only 12 large functions a year are currently allowed at Lindesay so book early to avoid disappointment.
