Room Hire

The Kirribilli Centre has a number of heritage rooms for hire, from Monday through to Sunday, day and evening. Our rooms range in size and are appropriate for large functions down to small meetings. Rooms for small intimate functions are available on the ground and first floors. An external lift opening from the back courtyard and the upper back balcony provides disability access between floors. There are two internal staircases.

Both levels have fully equipped kitchens, toilets (including disability) and spacious carpeted hallways and access to front and back balconies.  Most rooms have pedestal fans to assist sea breezes in summer and free-standing heaters to keep cosy in the winter months. Chairs and tables are available for around 60 people on either level. The front gardens provide a picturesque meeting place and can be used for photographic opportunities.

If you are interested in having your event catered for, please talk to us. We are more than happy to organise this for you. All charges will be added to your account. 

The back courtyard is fully secured and is child sensitive with a synthetic turf area, outdoor seating areas, plenty of shade and green throughout the seasons.

You are welcome to visit to inspect the facilities and resources. TKC has staff on duty 9.00 am to 9.30 pm on Monday to Thursday and 9.00 am to 5.00 pm on Friday. Library staff can provide access at the weekends from 10.00 am to 3.00 pm on Saturday and 10.00 am to 12 noon on Sunday.
