“ It is hard to imagine a more picturesque, enchanting setting for our little elopement with the children than standing on the beautiful ceremony grounds they call Africa! With their lush gardens, award-winning food at Warrior Restaurant and expert service they have cultivated and seized the essential ingredients to make anyone’s big day a special one!
The team was just perfect! We're absolutely overjoyed that we chose Australia Zoo as the venue for our special day. Joel and I highly recommend Australia Zoo if you are looking for a venue that has excellent attention to detail, is professional, organised, keeps everything running smoothly, fantastic customer service, and makes every effort to ensure your day runs perfectly.
