The Gap Bluff Centre is in Watsons Bay. It is part of Sydney Harbour National Park, and was formerly the South Head School of Artillery. The centre consists of two heritage-listed buildings - The Armoury and the Officer's Mess.

The venues offer harbour views and native secluded gardens. Many of our bride’s have enjoyed a garden ceremony overlooking the harbour followed by a banquet at one of the breathtaking venues.
