Event and function venue is set in secluded national park in Mosman, Gunners Barracks combines the very best of old and new. Think venerable colonial home with a Tuscan-inspired light design palette that has created extraordinarily fresh, modern spaces. It’s a wonderfully inviting enhancement of the heritage of this iconic 142 year old building. And whatever your corporate or private function, with our customisable indoor and outdoor floor plans, we can accommodate you. All this combined with glorious Sydney Harbour views, superb food and wines and expert planning and service. No wonder Gunners Barracks has become a premier event destination Australia-wide.

Part or all of Gunners Barracks is exclusively available for your corporate or private event, without noise restrictions or interruptions.

Inspired food, wines to match

Gunners Barracks Executive Chef Nathan Darling’s recipe for his fabulous food is simple: premium, freshest quality produce cooked with love and a dash of fun. It’s certainly a successful one – the Englishman and his team are renowned for their honest, unpretentious food and bold flavours. His mouth-watering menus draw on British and French influences, reflecting his 15 years’ experience in leading Sydney restaurants including Otto Ristorante, Public Dining Room and Sails on Lavender Bay among them. Nathan and his team bake fresh bread daily and their delectable petit fours are all handmade on the premise. They love a creative brief, so if you’re after a menu with some delicious innovations and service with a flourish, look not further than Gunners’ Barracks.
