Wedding Event Spaces

Function Centre

Fort Scratchley Function Centre Wedding
Located just outside the Fort walls, the Function Centre at Fort Scratchley Historic Site is a contemporary, light filled space.
Running along the northern side of the function centre, a deck provides an ideal alfresco option for you and your guests to enjoy pre–dinner drinks and canapĂ©s.
The Function Centre offers high ceilings and uninterrupted vision so that the bridal table can be seen from all corners of the room. The fixed dance floor is an added convenience so that as soon as those formalities are over, you and your fiancé can have your first dance as a married couple, then dance the night away with your family, friends and loved ones.
