If you are planning a special event that calls for a timeless location, the National Trust has heritage venues available for hire in New South Wales.

A selection of our historic venues are available for hire for weddings, gallery exhibitions, private parties, memorial services, corporate events and meetings, garden events, naming ceremonies, and for film and photographic locations.

We know that COVID-19 restrictions mean that special events cannot proceed as they otherwise would have, but with a little reimagining, you can still have a wonderful time. It will need to be an occasion with all guests seated according to the four square metre rule, there can’t be any dancing, mingling or singing but there will still be smiles and celebration.
Our venue hire arrangements have been revised in light of COVID-19 and we adhere to the following principles in opening our venues for hire:

  • Providing safe environments – including observing physical distancing measures, limiting the number of people within our spaces, helping to prevent contact, maintaining personal health and hygiene measures, and increasing the cleaning and monitoring of our facilities
  • Adhering to state and federal government instructions and guidelines, adapting our operations to maintain consistency with restrictions and advice changes
  • Providing information to support Hirers, guests, staff and volunteers to keep themselves and others safe by following health advice

We will continue to monitor Government and Health advice and ensure we continue to provide a quality experience for our visitors and guests. Please note COVID-19 Safety Plans may need to be updated in the future as restrictions and advice changes.
