Overview

Located on one of the world's most spectacular sites on the edge of Sydney Harbour, the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia is dedicated to exhibiting, collecting and interpreting the work of today's artists.

Our four spectacular venues are among the best in the world, boasting incomparable views of the Harbour, Sydney Opera House and city skyline. They provide stylish and contemporary backdrops for a range of events – weddings, product launches, cocktail functions and special occasions.

Blending 1930s Art Deco P&O style, our Foundation Hall is an impressive ballroom boasting seven-metre high ceilings and a terrace overlooking the Harbour.

Our two superb rooftop venues – Harbourside and Quayside Rooms – provide uninterrupted views across the Sydney Harbour, Sydney Opera House and city skyline. Their luxurious fitting include a partly covered terrace and outdoor area, cedar ceilings, hardwood flooring and floor-to-ceiling glass windows.

Located on Level 4 of the MCA, our Sculpture Terrace offers some of the most spectacular harbour views in town. It features stunning contemporary architecture, an indoor and outdoor area and a large-scale sculpture by a renowned Australian artist.

Catering for the Foundation Hall is provided exclusively by Culinary Edge, whilst catering for our other three rooftop venues is provided exclusively by Fresh Catering.
