Boasting unrivalled views out across Sydney Harbour, Opera House and Harbour Bridge, Fort Denison Cafe and Restaurant is the ultimate destination for celebrations in Sydney Harbour.
Whether it’s a birthday lunch, a proposal, or a wedding, it’s a wonderful place to enjoy world-class food in a world-class location. On New Year’s Eve, the gala dinner here makes an ideal way to watch the fireworks explode across the harbour as you ring in the new year.
It’s lovely all year round though, thanks to a heated marquee in the cooler months and a translucent rooftop over the dining area in summer. And after a spectacular lunch, discover Sydney’s maritime and colonial history by taking a stroll around the island.

Fort Denison is home to a wealth of historic heritage. The Fort Denison heritage collection project invited volunteers to locate, identify, document, conserve, interpret and make accessible the heritage collections in Sydney Harbour National Park. This allowed NPWS to engage with the community and ensure our collections are protected.
