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.
