Celebrate at the Zoo

Celebrate your special occasion at the Zoo.

A unique venue, ideal for birthdays, anniversaries, Christmas functions, end of year break ups.

Discounted group rates are available for groups of 10 or more paying guests (under three year olds are free and not included in group total). Group admission can be pre-purchased online.

If one person is paying for the whole group, or if everyone is paying individually we appreciate a guest list which enables us to process the group quicker. For the guest list form, click here

To compliment your event, we also have one small Weber gas BBQ available for hire and two wagons to transport your gear to your picnic area. Contact reception to book.  


With our new build underway, our picnic shelter area is unavailable to book. We do have a number of areas around the zoo which are suitable for group picnics, but these can not be booked in advance.

Please note: Our temporary Food Truck is closed until Alert Level 3 (step two). You're welcome to bring in your own picnics from home or support local and stop at a local cafe on the way.
