Taronga Event Centre Sydney Events
It’s not every venue that allows you to get up close and personal with big cats pre-dinner; enjoy uninterrupted views of the sun setting over the top of Sydney’s skyline; party with the iconic Sydney Opera House and the Harbour Bridge in the background; and sleep the night off in a luxury glamping tent surrounded by natural bushland. But Taronga Event Centre is no ordinary venue.
Nestled in Sydney Harbour National Park, Taronga Event Centre is truly unique, with a variety of small and large function spaces (everything from a grand ballroom to a stunning rooftop and large informal lawn areas) and, of course, the chance to spend time with guests of the animal variety.
As a Trippas White Group Venue, you can expect an unparalleled event experience at this unique Sydney location. This includes dedicated service, mouthwatering menus, and bespoke function packages tailored to your budget and vision.
Highlights of Taronga Events Sydney:

Highly recommended! Beautiful venue with a breathtaking view. Great food and excellent service from the wait staff - everything ran so smoothly. The team are a pleasure to work with - you can rest easy with them coordinating your reception!
Taronga Centre was the perfect venue for us. The top to bottom full glass window views from the room were a stunning iconic Sydney backdrop. We absolute loved our photo & video shoot in the zoo! Was so much fun!
The best view in Sydney! We had both our ceremony and reception at Taronga and could not have asked for a better venue. Their new rooftop room is the perfect ceremony location. The ceremony and reception were absolutely perfect.
