Other Information
This venue is also suitable for commercial and public events such as live performances, festivals and product launches.

Located off the tip of prestigious Darling Point near Double Bay in Sydney’s eastern suburbs, the beautiful Clark Island spans less than a hectare in size and boasts spectacular Sydney Harbour views - making it one of Sydney’s most sought after wedding venues. It is also an ideal location to host an awards function, corporate picnic or incentive day.

Lieutenant Ralph Clark cultivated the island as a vegetable garden in 1789 after arriving with the First Fleet the year before. Though his vegetables were continually stolen, the name ‘Clark’ remains firmly attached to the island, which is now a recreational haven for Sydneysiders.

Savour your event day while you and your guests soak up Clark Island’s exceptional vistas and historic surroundings. Wander its bushland pathways and feel you’ve stepped into a postcard as you indulge in some of the best Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge views around.

Take a virtual tour of Clark Island captured with Google Street View Trekker.
