The Hordern Pavilion, simply known as The Hordern to locals, has hosted everything from up-and-coming bands to music festivals and fashion runway shows to the epic Mardi Gras Party and has long been one of Sydney’s favourite entertainment venues.  Frank Sinatra, Coldplay, Justin Timberlake, Nirvana and even The Jackson Five… it all happened here!

Built in 1924 by the Royal Agricultural Society of NSW, it was originally used as exhibition space for the Royal Easter Show when it was based at Moore Park. It’s all that big, open space that makes it a fantastic venue. It can be left bare for a dance party, put in rows of chairs for a seated concert or install seating around the edges and leave the middle empty for a mosh pit.

Set in the Moore Park Precinct, the Hordern’s historic facade disguises a versatile venue packed with potential. Many millions of people have been through it’s doors – to dance, to sing, to dine and even do business. Live music, film premieres, gala dinners, product launches such as the Rolling Stone re-launch, award nights such a Dally Ms and Astra Awards as well as exhibitions like Life InStyle and Masterchef Live….

One of its big draw cards is the location.  Situated within the Moore Park Precinct next to the Entertainment Quarter and Fox Studios Australia, only 10 minutes from the Sydney CBD and 15 minutes from the airport. This venue is easily accessible by car, coach and public transport.  Car parking is available in the Wilsons multi-deck car park. Entry is via Lang Road, off Anzac Parade.
