Venue Testimonials

We had our wedding at the Melbourne Zoo and it was the most perfect venue for our special day. We couldn't recommend it more! Our ceremony took place on Platypus Lawn and our reception was in Leopard Lodge. The giraffe encounter was amazing! Thank you for making our day perfect in everyway!

I cannot rave enough about our day at the Melbourne Zoo, every aspect was amazing. The events team especially Jo were absolutely unreal and we’re so incredibly helpful with any request we had. They made our wedding experience such a joyful and non stressful one. We got married under the Moreton bay fig tree which was magical and had our reception at the Rainforest Room, the perfect size for our intimate wedding. Beautiful atmosphere, Beautiful Food, a once in a lifetime opportunity and a place to get married if you’re wanting something out of the ordinary. A day I’ll never forget.

The Melbourne Zoo was our dream venue, and it was just as amazing and incredible as we expected. The events staff were friendly, supportive and patient. Not to mention the experience of photos around the animals. Best day ever.
