Australian National Maritime Museum presents a new waterfront conference and event space

One of Sydney's most popular venues, the Australian National Maritime Museum, recently underwent a refurbishment. The upgrade brings The Conference Centre, a versatile series of spaces with jaw-dropping harbour views and features that make this new venue perfect for corporate events.


The Conference Centre, opening in November this year, features a dedicated entrance, 13-metre-tall glazing and an  entertainment terrace looking over Pyrmont Bay toward Barangaroo.



The venue features the capacity for up to 120 guests for day conferences or up to 200 guests for cocktail events. The available spaces make this new venue perfect for conferences, day-long meetings, evening events and corporate off-site meetings. An audio-visual suite is also available for use. Laissez-faire's award-winning menus are presented in the specially-designed servery.


If that's not enough,  The Conference Centre is also home to the Wal Gentle Boardroom. This  solid timber boardroom is in keeping with the museum's maritime heritage mission. The Boardroom offers an elegant contrast to the rest of the venue spaces.


Museum director, Kevin Sumption, said,

“We are delighted to be able to offer a previously private wing as a venue for commercial hire and cater to increasing demand for event spaces in this vibrant and growing Darling Harbour location. The Conference Centre emphasises the uniqueness of our venues spaces. We are thrilled to be able to host business events combined with visits to our galleries or evening cocktails on the helipad of an ex-naval destroyer, the HMAS Vampire. It allows us to share Australia’s maritime history and heritage in a dynamic way.”


The Conference Centre is a new and exciting venue for event organisers to experience and for guests to enjoy.  If you'd like to know more about The Conference Centre at the Australian National Maritime Museum, contact us.
