Once home to Auckland Zoo's elephants, the Old Elephant House is now an iconic indoor venue, suitable for a variety of event types from conferences to wedding receptions, cocktail parties, photo exhibitions or seated dinners.
 
The building retains its grand size and character with large stalls, high ceilings and an outdoor courtyard. Discover relics from the Old Elephant House's previous occupants decorating the walls. This is a special function venue like no other and is the perfect venue to create magic memories for your guests.
 
The Old Elephant house is a flexibile space that can comfortably host 120 guests for a banquet dinner or up to 200 guests cocktail-style. The renovated Old Elephant House is the perfect blank canvas for a unique function at Auckland Zoo​.
 
This space is available for use during the day or for evening functions.​
 
Please note: The Auckland Zoo is undergoing various renovations during the next 18 months and the event spaces will not be available after 31st January 2017.
