Wedding Venues Function Rooms Conference Venues Unique Venues

Entertain your guests against the spectacular backdrop of Auckland Zoo.

Wonderfully unique function venue a stone's throw from the CBD. Entertain your guests against the spectacular backdrop of Auckland Zoo. Premier function rooms and plenty of outdoor activity.

Auckland Zoo guarantees all its guests an event to remember. With a variety of indoor and outdoor venues, your personal or corporate event will go without a hitch - unless it's a wedding of course. With several romantic, scenic areas to choose from, it's the ideal place to celebrate the most special day of your life. But it's not just weddings that are popular here. Whether your needs are personal or corporate, Auckland Zoo has something to suit you.

Willow Island is a magical, fairytale setting for a cocktail party, wedding ceremony or birthday party. With beautiful little waterfalls and a mythical forest setting, lights can be hung from the trees to make the day all the more enchanting, and your guests will have exclusive access to the famous Peter Pan Bridge.

Another amazing outdoor venue is the Central Lawn, a vast space that can cater for up to 200 people (cocktail) or a sit-down marquee dinner for 110. Here, you might even glimpse orang utans, seals and meerkats, as you bask on the grass!

The Band Rotunda is another popular venue, and has four distinct lawned areas which can hold marquees, and are also perfect for that idyllic picnic. Host your informal birthday party or use the space to get some office team building activities going.

Inside, you can enjoy a formal sit-down function in the Old Elephant House. A beautiful, light and bright function centre, it can cater for anything from 12-200 guests, and has wonderful high ceilings, large windows, and a delightful outdoor courtyard.

The Lion Shelter offers a unique entertaining space with a very rustic feel. Gaze out over the Pridelands as you dine in style (up to 50 seated), or enjoy a stylish cocktail party (100 people), with your furry, four-legged friends prowling just metres away!

Let the function team take care of your every need - they can arrange catering, photography, even night-time safari walks for your guests, and they'll know exactly how to get the most from your Auckland Zoo experience.
