The Domes is one of Auckland’s most unique spaces to hold an event – with its grand design, immersive feel and zoo soundtrack, this is the perfect space for you to make your special event unforgettable.

Constructed by Auckland based company Event Base and their partners Creative Structures in 2017 and most recently home to Te Papa and Weta Workshops blockbuster exhibition Bug Lab, The Domes cover 1000m² over six domes (hexadomes and crossover), and include a custom designed entrance tunnel. The distinctive smooth round canopy and dome shape adds to the aesthetic appeal of feeling like you are entering into a very special function space creating an exciting feeling of a surprise reveal for your function attendees to add an element of surprise.

With capacity for up to 350 guests, the space is ideal for gala dinners, cocktail function, conferences or product launches. 

Your guests can also visit the Zoo before attending the event. Our Events Team can organise this for you.
