About Us

With a story that spans generations as a boarding school and community hub, Baulkham Hills’ historic mansion Cropley House finally reopened on Friday 28 September. The venue was unveiled as the area’s most sought after weddings and corporate event venue, following a year of renovations to return the mansion to its former grandeur.

Situated on five acres of green parkland, the two-story mansion is framed by a wisteria-lined balcony overlooking a stunning rose garden and gazebo, perfect for intimate wedding ceremonies. With two impressive rooms on the ground floor and four smaller separate rooms on the upper level, Cropley House is home to spaces suitable to all types of events, from large grand lunches to conferences with small breakout areas.


Entrenched in the Hills’ community since the 1920s, Cropley House maintains an old-world charm that celebrates its history as one of the Hills’ finest Georgian Revival mansions.

Upstairs, the dormitories where the boarders once slept under the matron’s watchful eye have been repurposed as stunning function rooms and breakout areas with sweeping views of the manicured gardens and lush grounds.
