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! We also loved working with Kylie & Nichole. They are very experienced and have been very helpful responsive throughout the entire process from beginning till end. Even when we were still considering they gave us time and space to do this. They’ve been flexible and easygoing, and they’ve gone above and beyond to help us with our wedding. This assured us that everything was in great hands and we didn’t have to worry about anything. Thank you so so much ladies for your wonderful assistance!

Highly recommended! Beautiful venue with a breathtaking view. Great food and excellent service from the wait staff - everything ran so smoothly. All this couldn't have happened without Nichole and Kylie's hard work. They are a pleasure to work with - you can rest easy with them coordinating your reception!

Hi Sherman & Kat! We appreciate your kind words. Nichole and I absolutely loved working with you to create such a memorable day from start to finish. With the harbour views from our venue and the perfect sunset - Sydney definitely put on a show for your overseas and local guests. We wish you all the happiness and can't wait to see your photos! Kylie & Nichole xx

Taronga Function Centre was such a beautiful wedding venue. Our guests could not stop raving about the view, service, food and beverages. They were extremely accommodating and so beautiful to work with in the lead up to our wedding!

Pro - Awesome Sydney Harbour view and smooth wedding day. Con - high turn over on staff and no change management process. I dealt with 6 event coordinator in less than 12 months and they didn't keep a good record on our past communication. I recommend to budget for your own event coordinator/wedding planner to save yourself the headache. Leisa from Windwood Event rescued my sanity and I was relaxed even the venue provided me with a new event coordinator again 5 days before the wedding!

We were excited to book with Epicure at Taronga Zoo but disappointed with the journey. The staff are great and are very helpful when you are communicating with them 1:1. However, we rotated through 3 wedding coordinators in the 12 months leading up to our wedding. Throughout our engagement with Epicure, it was difficult to reach our coordinator at times, we had to communicate the same info every time we switched coordinators and we were promised inclusions that didn't present themselves on the wedding day. It suggests to me deep cultural issues, where staff are trying to do right by their clients but are heavily under-resourced. I would like to thank the staff for doing their best to support their clients (they are accommodating and great on the day), but if we were to do it all over again, we would not host our wedding at the Taronga Centre and would not recommend it to our family or friends.

Hi Sui, thank you for your feedback. We will have someone from our team get in touch soon to discuss this further with you. Regards, The Taronga Centre team

The best view in Sydney! We had both our ceremony and reception at Taronga and could not have asked for a better venue. Although we had to change our ceremony location from outside to inside, it worked out perfectly. Their new rooftop room is the perfect ceremony location. The ceremony and reception were absolutely perfect.

Beautiful beautiful location and excellent food! This place is simply magical and has the best views of the harbour bridge and opera house and sunset. The service was amazing also. The only reason for a 4 instead of a 5 star is we had significant turnover in our contact person / wedding coordinator which created some stress - over a period of 6 months everytime we spoke to someone shortly after they had left and there wasn't a smooth communication process.

We had our wedding at the view restaurant with 50 guests. The venue itself is amazing with a great view of Sydney and the staff on the day of the wedding was very helpful. We also had an amazing wedding coordinator who was very helpful. However, she has left and we have got a new coordinator a few months before our wedding. We are giving 3 stars because we found the communication with the new coordinator was not always clear as the instructions we discussed weren't followed. We prepare the seating chart so the family and friends can sit together but this was not followed so some were sitting separately. Also some dietary requirements weren't followed so some guests get dish that they cannot eat. We wish her communication was better so there would be no issues on the big day!

I could never fault this venue. The food and the view are both incredible but the thing that stood out for us was the staff at the venue. We visited other venue locations in Sydney and they felt like they just pumped out weddings and were not at all invested in your day...you don't feel like this with Taronga. One of my bridesmaids had a number of food issues and like everything else they did everything to accomodate. Thank you to Jessie and Katherine for everything.

Taronga Centre is an absolutely beautiful venue. The view is stunning and the environment is beautiful. There is a supportive team which were very helpful on the day, at times I felt the organisation could be improved. Overall, I had a great time having my wedding at the Taronga Centre, and was happy with the food on the day as well.

Hi Xiang. We appreciate your kind words. Jess absolutely loved working with you for your special day. Wishing you both a lifetime of happiness! Jess and the Taronga Centre team xx

Simply an amazing venue and place to celebrate your wedding! We got the Harbourview Terrace, we celebrate our day on a Saturday afternoon and the view was absolutely gorgeous. All our guests were​ impacted on how amazing the city looks from that point, it was beautiful! In regards the coordination, at the beginning was really good, we had a lady that was helping us a lot and she was very attentive with the emails, calls and replying as soon as she could, all our doubts and mini details. Unfortunately, around 2 months before the wedding, she left the center and we got a new coordinator and it wasn´t the same. The emails, responses, and coordination of everything we had with the previous lady was a mess, and we ended up with some problems and discussions after the wedding. A shame knowing that after a month of the big day we were still dealing with issues and discussions. Besides the bad part of the process, the place was amazing, the food was REALLY good, it felt like it was not going to be enough but it wasn´t, delicious and very good treatment from the staff. We had a blast!

Taronga centre was the perfect venue. Our guests loved the view (vivid was on) and commented on the great food. Throughout the whole planning process, Nichole was amazing. She was very informative and answered allll of my questions. Everything went to plan and was an incredible day. The venue is breathtaking, the food was tasty and the customer service throughout we could not fault. Only minor thing I could complain about was having to walk through the grounds to each photo location when we thought the buggies would transport us around so the 1 hour photo time feels mostly spent walking around.

Nichole and Kylie were amazing in planning and executing our wedding. Great attention to detail. We had plenty of compliments on the food, view, and obliging wait staff. Guests loved taking photos on the balcony, and we got some picture perfect shots on the zoo grounds before the reception.

Amy was great to deal with. The views were awesome, the food was great. I didn't have to worry about a thing. Although some feedback I got from some guests is that they weren't waited on for drinks as much as I would have liked but they still had the option to go to the bar.

The venues views a breath taking! We had half our guests from overseas & interstate so was a very good place to show our city off. Only down side is it is kind of pricey compared to some other venues in the area but was worth it.

We had 150 guests in the harbour view terrace room. We dealt with Kylie and Nichole who were both very professional and well organised. Nichole worked with my suppliers to ensure a smooth bump in and bump out process. The food and wine tasting night was great and allowed us to try and choose the amazing tasting food / drinks. All of our guests commented on how good the food was! Very happy with the venue and it looked amazing!

We had such a magical day. The staff really made the day as stress free as possible. As far as I knew there were no drama's, which is how a Bride should feel. Th venue looked amazing, and we had the most magical sunset, which the guests got to enjoy for about an hour while we put our food on hold. A truly magical and amazing day!

Taronga Zoo Weddings  

Thank you Jade and John. Your wedding reception & wedding ceremony was absolutely divine, Jewel Phon did a fabulous job with all your floral arrangements and theming. We love showcasing your photos! :) - Nichole & Kylie

The Taronga Centre is an absolutely amazing wedding venue. We were first drawn to it because of the unique location and great view but the staff and the food were incredible as well. I would recommend it to anyone. Everyone was so professional and did everything possible to make our wedding day perfect. Their wedding planners are such a great help and I was so happy with how everything turned out.

We could not have picked a better venue for our reception! We had quite a few overseas guests for our wedding and we wanted to be able to show the stunning view of Sydney Harbour without compromising on food and shelter (in the event of rain). Taronga Centre ticked all the boxes. It was reasonably priced, there is an indoor and outdoor terrace area, the food was delicious and the staff were all fantastic. All our guests commented on how great the food was and the staff as being very friendly. Kylie, Amy and my bridal attendant all did an amazing job helping me prepare for the reception leading up to and on the day. I cannot fault anything and I absolutely 100% would recommend Taronga Centre as the best wedding venue in Sydney. The food was so great that people were lining up for the dessert canapes we chose and it was all gone within minutes - we didn't even get to try any of the dessert because people took it off our plates from our table! We had nutella doughnuts, crackle top profiteroles and macaroons.

We loved our reception. The view, the set up on the night, allowing us to make the reception truly ours with the cheese table, band, and our own personal decorations. Amy and Kylie the wedding coordinators were extremely helpful and professional throughout the whole process. Our guests love the location- expeically during canapés on the balcony overlooking the harbour and enjoying the sunset. This was an exceptional place to hold our wedding and we are so glad we will have such happy memories of this location for many years to come.

We had both our wedding ceremony and reception at Taronga Centre. It was truly spectacular – the venue was outstanding. Everything went perfectly and the day ran smoothly – all credit to our Wedding and Event Coordinators – Kylie and Amy for making it all happen! It was such a pleasure working with them – no question or request was ever any trouble, they were always so informative and helpful. We are so happy we choose this venue and would not change a thing from the night. The staff was excellent, food and service was outstanding and we had so many guests complimenting the staff and service and venue throughout the whole night.

Amy and her team did a remarkable job to make our engagement party a big success and soo memorable! The view was breathtaking, food was GREAT, service was friendly and professional... we received many positive feedback from our guests. The coordinator Amy was tremendously helpful in responding to all of our queries very very promptly, and even accommodated to a couple of (very) last minute requests. We felt like we were being looked after very well by the team at Restaurant Associates and Taronga Centre and we would not have changed one bit of it.
