Map, showing Cockle Bay Lawn

The Cockle Bay Lawn is a grassy area between the ICC Sydney and Cockle Bay, situated adjacent to the south-western promenade.

Suitable for small private gatherings or brand activations, Cockle Bay Lawn is exposed to high foot traffic as it is adjacent to a major thoroughfare, several restaurants and the ICC Sydney.
