For all occasions
We have a great variety of community venues available for hire.
Community venues include rooms, halls and auditoriums that are suitable for either community meetings, conferences, functions or weddings.
All parties who hire City facilities must have $10 million public liability insurance coverage. Proof of such coverage is required before your booking can be confirmed.
Individuals and small community groups that do not have public liability insurance may be eligible to apply for cover under the City of Sydney's community engagement liability policy at the following rates:
- level 1 – venue booking fees under $400 excluding GST: $30 per booking
- level 2 – venue booking fees between $400 and $1,600 excluding GST: $110 per booking
- level 3 – venue booking fees over $1,600 excluding GST: $225 per booking.
Our community venues staff can advise the process involved to apply for coverage under the City's policy.
Conditions of hire
We ask that all venue hirers read and understand the City's conditions of hire, which covers:
- cancellations and insurance
- noise controls and cleaning
- catering and advertising
- parking, safety and other regulations.
Please note that we require 2 weeks' notice to make a booking at an unstaffed community venue.
Free rehearsal space for students
We have some great spaces available for rehearsal if you’re studying and need a place to jam.
Hiring one of our venues won’t cost you a thing.
