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.

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.

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.
