Fort Denison Restaurant is a unique venue that is suitable for a myriad of occasions. The beautiful sandstone building and harbour vista provide a sumptuous backdrop to your event be it a wedding, corporate function or cocktail party. The venue can accommodate a maximum of 230 guests for a cocktail style reception or a maximum of 180 guests for a seated dinner with a dance floor. Cruises for up to one hour around Sydney harbour can be organised prior to arriving on the island, the perfect way for guests to get a taste of the Harbour before they arrive to their private island for the evening.
The island can be hired exclusively for a private event offering a number of different areas which can be used by your group for the entire evening.

Battery Lawn - Situated on the eastern side of the island with views to South Head, the Battery Lawn is a perfectly manicured stretch of lush grass atop the fort, which is a fantastic spot for canapés, pre-dinner drinks and cocktails. It is also an ideal spot for a wedding ceremony, with the magnificent harbour and city as a backdrop for photos.

Marquee - The site of Fort Denison's restaurant, the stylish clear marquee on the western side of the fort offers every wedding guest the same uninterrupted view of the Harbour. The roof of the marquee is also clear so guests will be dining under the stars and the stunning Martello Tower which is lit each night. The marquee provides space for 200 guests for cocktails or dinner, and 170 guests sit down with a dance floor and band set-up.

Forecourt - Fort Denison's Forecourt is ideal for champagne and canapés on arrival, or as a chill-out lounge area away from the marquee when decorated with stylish furniture. The space to the south of the wharf also offers bench seats for guests to take in the view. The Forecourt is the only designated smoking area on the island.

Wharf – To ensure guests receive the warmest welcome (especially those in stilettos), the Fort Denison wharf can be dressed with a stylish red or black carpet.
The historic venue provides a magical setting for tying the knot, with the Battery Lawn atop the Fort providing the ultimate location. With a backdrop of Sydney's Opera House, Mrs Macquarie's Chair and the sparkling harbour, this space promises the bride and groom a collection of unforgettable photos, while guests are treated to a day of luxury with 360-degree views of the city. Trays of chilled beverages will greet guests as they stroll down the red carpet along the jetty. Guests will then be able to enjoy pre-dinner drinks on the Battery Lawn watching the sunset over the Harbour Bridge or head to the battery lawn for your wedding ceremony.
