Gunners’ Barracks Sydney Events

Gunners’ Barracks is one of Sydney’s most iconic heritage sites offering several unique spaces for weddings, corporate functions and social gatherings.

Constructed in 1873, the sandstone building was originally used as barracks for artillerymen operating a battery on Georges Head. It has since been magnificently restored into a popular restaurant, tea room and function venue with intimate settings and classic charm features. 

Burrowed in the Mosman bushland and overlooking Sydney’s world-famous harbour, the waterfront venue is a picture-perfect backdrop for celebratory events. Whether it’s a large get-together or a small affair, you’ll find private and semi-private spaces available with custom furnishings and elegant details that will make any celebration one to remember.

  • Supreme waterfront views

Venue Testimonials

This place is a hidden gem. […] Tye view is spectacular.

Shweta Rai

We had our wedding reception here 10 years ago. […] It looks as crisp as it did when our reception was held there. We're so glad to see it being maintained so well. The views are still fantastic and the remote setting of this historic site so close to the city is still special.

Matthew Shanahan

The food was tasty and location is scenic. Excellent service, very professional staff.
