Access to Narryna’s interiors

Narryna is open Tuesday to Saturday from 10am - 4.30pm. Events may take place in general opening times or after hours. Your event guests are welcome to see inside the house. This is covered by your venue hire fee.

Wedding photography is not generally permitted indoors owing to the fragility of the collection, with important pieces on loan to Narryna.

Scattering of confetti or rice is not permitted in the grounds.

Narryna is registered as a charity with the Australian Charities and Not-For-Profits Commission and so may receive tax-exempt donations.

Narryna is a treasure of Tasmania’s colonial heritage. We thank you for choosing to have your ceremony here and your contribution to the house’s restoration.
