One of the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences (MAAS) venues, Sydney Observatory in the historic Rocks precinct is Australia’s oldest observatory and one of the most significant sites in the nation’s scientific history. Built in 1858, astronomers have observed the southern sky from there for more than 150 years. High on Observatory Hill, Sydney Observatory occupies a beautiful heritage listed sandstone building, and for a limited time each year, a marquee in the courtyard for special events. The 10 by 20 metre Robian marquee provides the perfect setting for your special event.
The marquee is available for a range of events, from cocktail parties, wedding receptions, luncheons and dinners to product launches. Clear sides on the marquee allow guests to enjoy stunning views of the surrounding harbour and city skyline.
For a truly unique experience your guests can explore the stars above with an added private telescope viewing. Or participate in Sydney Observatory’s Name a Star program which enables you to associate your organisation with a star in the Sydney Southern Star Catalogue. Corporate Name a Star gifts are fully tax deductible.
