Elizabeth Farm was built in 1793 for John and Elizabeth Macarthur, pioneers of the Australian wool trade, before being renovated and transformed into a fine colonial bungalow.
The elegant dining and drawing rooms are perfect for small dinners, with pre-dinner drinks served on the sandstone verandah and lawns. The working open fireplaces and original features of the rooms add a special and unforgettable ambience.
Please note the service of red wine inside the house is limited due to the conservation requirements of the original flooring at Elizabeth Farm, and can only be served while guests are seated for banquet events.
The brick-paved oak tree courtyard provides a magical outdoor space for a cocktail party, with plenty of shade for those hot summer evenings and the elegant house as a backdrop.
Please note: evening bookings at Elizabeth Farm must conclude by 10:30pm. In consideration of our neighbours and local residents, amplification is restricted; please speak to our Venue Services team for more information.
The stunning gardens provide a charming outdoor setting for cocktail parties, lunches and dinners under a marquee. Please contact our Venue Services coordinator for more information.
