sydney & surrounds power From the historic steam revolution of our past to the latest in Australian and international architecture and design, the museum is more than just a unique venue for your event. It provides an environment that showcases human creativity and achievement, champions the future and stimulates thought-provoking debate. The museum has a huge variety of gallery spaces that are sure to inspire and enhance your next event. From the impressive Grand Foyer to the popular transport exhibition, venues can accommodate up to 1200 guests for cocktails or up to 200 for dinner. Many exhibition spaces are suitable for smaller formal or informal events. What many planners may not know is that the Powerhouse Museum also has a facility in Sydney’s northwest – the Powerhouse Discovery Centre - the storage and collection care facility of the museum which also offers unique spaces for hire in its industrial feel centrepiece, the Display Store. Venues include the Integral Foyer and adjoining exhibition areas suitable for cocktails, dinners and product launches and the Resource Room for private meetings, presentations or training workshops. The landscaped lawn area and children’s climbing frame located adjacent to the Display Store provide the perfect venue for a family day style event, and a marquee can be erected on the lawn for outdoor cocktail or dinner functions. And for a different event experience, consider the heritagelisted Sydney Observatory in The Rocks. Built in 1858, Sydney Observatory is Australia’s oldest observatory and one of the most significant sites in the nation’s scientific history.

In a new strategy, Oz Harvest has been appointed as the official distributor of all of Avocado Group’s excess and leftover event food. embraces the GFC
