Imagine a summer barbeque with the lions, dining in the historic Old Elephant House, or team-building activities in unique spaces. With naturally inspiring landscapes and unrivalled venues, Auckland Zoo has all you need to make your event one your guests will remember for years to come.
Minutes away from Auckland CBD with ample onsite parking, our event spaces can host functions from 50 guests, to extravagant affairs for 5000, with exclusive access to our grounds.
The Old Elephant House
Once home to Auckland Zoo’s elephants, the Old Elephant House is now an iconic venue suitable for a variety of event types including cocktail parties and seated dinners. The building retains its grand size and character with large stalls, high ceilings and an outdoor courtyard.
Due to open early 2019, The Domes offer a unique space to host cocktail and dinner functions for over 350 guests in an indoor, air-conditioned and versatile function venue. Most recently home to Te Papa and Weta Workshop’s blockbuster exhibition Bug Lab, The Domes cover 1000m² over six domes and include a custom designed entrance tunnel that you can personalise for your event.
Offering a true wildlife experience, Auckland Zoo is due to open a brand new restaurant and function space in 2020. Your guests will enjoy watching orangutans and gibbons explore from above via special climbing structures in their new rainforest home.
