Host your function or event at Auckland Zoo

At Auckland Zoo, we offer a unique experience for your staff, clients, family or friends.

We can create a memorable event in one of our many function spaces - imagine a summer barbecue with the lions, dining in the historic Old Elephant House, pre-dinner drinks with the alligators or cocktails with the cotton-top tamarins.  Alternatively, you could surprise your guests by hiring the entire Zoo.

With our stunning landscapes and unrivalled venues, we have all you need to make your event one that your guests will be talking about for years to come.

Booking enquiries

Enquiries for function hire are managed by our functions team at Auckland Conventions Venues & Events, who are experts in venue and event management.

For more information about hiring the function spaces at the Zoo, please email events@aucklandconventions.co.nz or phone 0800 54 98 98.
