Vaucluse House

A Country Oasis Near the Heart Of The City

Dating back to 1803 and set in 10ha  of picturesque grounds and gardens that stretch down to the water’s edge, Vaucluse House is a stunning 19th-century harbourside estate just minutes from the CBD. Its beautiful sandstone mansion was built in the 1830s and was home to explorer and barrister William Charles Wentworth and his family, and many of their possessions remain on display in the house to this day.

The venue is perfect for lunches and special events for 20–120 people. Vaucluse House’s scenic setting also makes it a highly desirable location for wedding ceremonies, and photography.

With plenty of free onsite parking, wedding ceremonies and events can be held on the Lone Pine Lawn that adjoins the Pleasure Gardens. The award-winning, fully licensed Tearooms are in close proximity to both and make a wonderful venue for parties.

A dedicated event planner will take care of all your needs from your initial inquiry right through to your special day and our Audiovisual Team can assist with all your AV requirements.
