About This Venue

If you are looking for a stunning venue with WOW factor, that works on a DIY/Dry Hire basis and includes lots of “extras”, look no further.

Cornwallis House is the jewel of the Hawkesbury, located on the banks of the beautiful Hawkesbury River, only an hour from the hustle and bustle of Sydney CBD. This is a privately owned property set on a working orange orchard with a gorgeous big Queenslander style house offering luxury accommodation for eight people.

We specialise in outdoor country garden style weddings from 60 to around 250 guests. You will have exclusive use of the property for the weekend to create the wedding of your dreams. You can hire your own suppliers, and set up and decorate any way you want. The venue is perfect for adding your own touch of magic, and at the same time keeping within your budget.

The Cornwallis House Wedding & Event Package cost currently (2024) starts from a minimum of 60 guests for $7,900 (incl gst). It increases in cost in increments, depending on the number of guests you will have at the event. Ask us for a quote for the number of guests you wish.
