Welcome to ‘Rockend’
Part of our rich colonial heritage.

Banjo Paterson Cottage Restaurant operates from a beautiful sandstone building dating back to the 1830’s. Classified by the National Trust, “Rockend” is where A.B.’Banjo’ Paterson lived as a young man with his grandmother.

Situated within 6 acres of parkland the restaurant is surrounded by landscaped gardens, making it ideal for garden ceremonies. The adjoining car park has room for over 50 cars. The restaurant’s old-world charm is highlighted by several open fireplaces and the views from our 2 spacious, fully enclosed verandahs are stunning. With a kitchen and cellar that have resulted in Banjo Paterson Cottage receiving numerous awards, your food and beverage requirements will be more than adequately satisfied.

Surrounded by 5 acres of parkland and landscaped gardens overlooking the Parramatta River, Banjo Paterson’s is an ideal location for wedding ceremonies and receptions. The fully air-conditioned restaurant offers several private dining rooms, ideal for wedding parties.

Immediately below the cottage is a substantial private jetty, suitable for all types of boats also allowing access to water taxis , a lovely way for the bride and groom or guests to arrive or depart.

The Restaurant’s primary function is a la carte dining, however the restaurant is available for functions any day of the week.

At Banjo Paterson’s we ensure our beautiful setting and our friendly and helpful staff will make your day a special and memorable one.

We look forward to your visit.
