Lawns with Spectacular City & Harbour Views
Farm Cove Precinct Lawns
Eucalypt Lawn - Lawn 29
Nestled amongst the shady eucalypts, this gorgeous lawn is set back above a natural rock ledge with spectacular views overlooking the Harbour. This area provides an element of privacy and is close to parking and amenities.
Harbour View Lawn - Lawn 33
Enjoy glistening water views framed by the large shady fig tree on the most popular wedding lawn in Farm Cove. Close to amenities.
Note that a low temporary fence has been installed around three sides of the fig tree in order to minimise foot traffic around the tree's roots and improve its health during the next year. For safety reasons (possible falling tree limbs) we ask that wedding ceremonies and photography be conducted outside the fence.
Mare & Foal Statue Lawn - Lawn 34
This lovely expansive lawn provides spectacular views towards the Sydney Opera House & Harbour Bridge. Close to amenities.
Farm Cove View Lawn - Lawns 35 & 36
Located on the top of a natural rock ledge this lawn has an elevated view across Sydney Harbour. Due to its size, this lawn is best suited to wedding parties of 10 or less.
Flower Bed Lawn - Lawn 39
Situated next to the Main Pond, this beautiful lawn is named after the flower beds that surround the sandstone monument. This lawn has a striking backdrop of the city skyline and harbour.
Yurong Precinct Lawns
Mrs Macquaries Point - Domain Lawns 42 & 43
Mrs Macquaries Point is world famous for the iconic views of the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Opera House. You may use any lawn areas, however due to its popularity with tourists we are not able to accept bookings on the concrete viewing platform. Very popular for wedding photography.
Bridge View Lawn (Domain Lawn 41) & Yurong Lawn (Domain Lawn 38)
These lawn areas are rich in Australian flora and due to their proximity to Mrs Macquaries Rd, are fantastic locations for wedding photographs or to pull up to your ceremony in a horse and cart. Close to parking and amenities.
