Adelaide Zoo

Conveniently located in the centre of Adelaide Zoo, this stunning heritage listed venue was built in 1884 and is believed to be the largest of its kind in South Australia.

This versatile space can accommodate up to 180 people for a sit down function, or 250 people for a cocktail event. Embrace the sights and sounds of being in the zoo after hours – hear the roar of the lion or the calls of the primates!

Overlooking the central lawn, this space creates the feeling of outdoors with the comforts of undercover dining. Theming, lighting and draping are all commonly used to enhance this space and create the perfect feel for your event.

This venue is regularly used for family days, casual BBQ dining and as a spectacular wedding reception venue!
