AUCKLAND ZOO - With Aotearoa’s largest home of native and exotic wildlife as a backdrop, Auckland Zoo makes for memorable events, cocktail functions, seated dinners, weddings and more.
Te Puna is a new café and event venue with indoor and outdoor spaces overlooking the central lake and wetlands. Those dining on the expansive outdoor deck will be just metres away from orangutans and siamang gibbons as they traverse a network of towering aerial pathways. Te Puna is available for evening hire only. This space is perfect for hosting an intimate gala dinner or a cocktail function.
The Domes is visually striking and covers 650m² over five hexadomes, including a custom-designed entrance tunnel. Its innovative modular layout connects all hexadomes to create a large space. The Domes is ideal for gala dinners, cocktail functions, family days, Christmas parties and more.

Once home to Auckland Zoo’s elephants, the Old Elephant House is now an iconic restaurant, suitable for a variety of event types including wedding receptions, cocktail parties and seated dinners.
