Whites Creek Stables

A unique covered space adjacent to Whites Creek Cottage and Whites Creek Valley Park, Whites Creek Stables brings character and charm in spades. 'The Stables' as it is affectionately known, is a great base for birthday parties and gatherings. Much like its sister property - Whites Creek Cottage, The Stables is a hidden gem in the Annandale and Lilyfield areas.

The hireable area includes the stone and grass area in front of the stables as far north as the big tree, and as far east as the tree line. Please note, it does not include the barbecue or grass areas; those are publicly-accessible areas.

The Stables can be hired with Whites Creek Cottage for access to a kitchen.
