St Josephs Guesthouse and Function Venue is a unique location for functions, weddings and special events.  Our aim is to provide a blank canvas on which our clients can design and put in place all of the elements they need for a great success.  We have a growing list of businesses both in the valley and the greater Hawkesbury area that can provide services and products.

Businesses listed below will have a phone number or a link (or both).  Some links will take you to a booking service rather than directly to the business.
