Events and Entertainment - Tanilba Bay, NSW

Historic Tanilba House (1831)
Beautiful Award Winning Wedding and Function Centre
A unique combination of colonial history and country charm surrounded by incredible Port Stephens.

"Tanilba" is an indigenous word that means "A place of white flowers". This is due to the many flannel flowers that originally covered the whale tail shaped peninsula where she stands today

The house is an imposing, convict built 6 bedroom stone homestead built c 1831. Tanilba is the oldest original home in Port Stephens

She has broad, colonial wrap around verandahs that overlook magnificent Port Stephens & is surrounded by 3 acres of whimsical, mature gardens full of flowers

A key element is the unique 30m long 1920's wisteria covered arbour with stone pillars and wishing chair

A circular stone driveway with imposing entry columns was added in the 1920's

The original convict built gaol still stands on the property

A large all weather conservatory overlooks the fields & bay

Extensive garden and house lighting features 1000's of fairy lights creating an etheral night time otherworldliness

Arguably the oldest olive tree in Australia still produces olives in the field

Two c160 year old fig trees create a unique rainforest and fig tree "cathedral" ceremony area

Home to the first vineyard in the region.
