Bennelong Lawn is the perfect location for your next event – anything is possible! Contact our Events & Venues team to discuss your event at Bennelong Lawn today.

Bennelong is hired as greenspace only. You are responsible for providing all event services and infrastructure required to run your event, such as marquees, staging, audio, lighting, catering, security, fencing, toilets, décor etc. Please note it is a condition of hire that you engage an experienced event management service provider to deliver your private outdoor event. Your Botanic Gardens venue representative will work closely with your appointed event manager to ensure that they are briefed on the operational delivery requirements of the venue.

This will ensure that your event is both safe and successful whilst also minimising impacts on the natural greenspace which may include impacts such as those which could be caused by traffic/deliveries, event equipment (installation/removal), supplier access, waste, power & water, and major infrastructure such as marquees and other temporary facilities.

Note, Bennelong Lawn is available for hire for a minimum period of three (3) days.
