A unique cultural venue, the Cutaway is an expansive, below-ground concrete space offering flexibility for a range of large-scale events. 

The super-sized concrete void is Sydney’s newest and most unique cultural venue. Located a step away from the CBD at Barangaroo Reserve, it can be transformed in a variety of innovative ways to host your next event.

Hidden away beneath the artificial hill that is now home to Sydney’s new native botanic garden, the Cutaway is a fundamental part of the city’s remarkable re-created north western headland.

The Cutaway is the perfect venue to host a range of events including exhibitions, launches, gala dinners, corporate functions, fashion shows and markets. It is also a fabulous location for filming and photography.

Raw and imposing, the Cutaway offers pedestrian access from the south and a 300 space underground car park.
