About This Venue
Lilburndale is a wonderfully unique wedding venue providing a mix of beautifully preserved history and picturesque Australian landscapes.
One of the most historic sites in the Hawkesbury region, Lilburndale is a short 1.15-hour drive from Sydney. The scenic 1100-acre property features Lilburndale House and other historic pastoral buildings including The Packing Shed wedding reception venue.
The historic sandstone homestead ‘Lilburndale House’ provides an ideal backdrop for your ceremony and after ceremony festivities. There are a variety of beautiful locations throughout the grounds of Lilburndale for photographs while your guests enjoy the serenity and refreshments.
The Packing Shed’s wedding reception venue caters for up to 120 guests for a canape style wedding and 110 for a sit-down dining experience. Originally built in the 1920s, the venue boasts a polished industrial style interior with a mixture of concrete floors, black steel, and timber. Antique citrus farming machinery has been restored and repurposed throughout the venue, giving the venue character and depth. With plenty of contemporary touches, the Packing Shed still retains its original charm – it’s rustic done right!

Our venue hire is all-inclusive providing venue hire, tables, chairs, cutlery, crockery, lounges, as well as set up and pack down of the Lilburndale inclusions.
