If you’re wanting dramatic city views without the hassle of being right in the centre of town then the Taronga Centre is the ultimate choice. When you’re choosing a venue, food and beverage are usually top of mind, but a venue like the Taronga Centre can offer you experiences on your wedding day that are pretty hard to match. And if you’re an animal lover, what could make for a better photoshoot than being among it all at the Zoo – included with compliments in all reception packages.
Of course when you’re narrowing down your venue options, there will be much to consider, and one of the most pressing things on your mind is trying to figure out where your wedding ceremony will be. And located on the shores of Sydney Harbour in Mosman, you are spoilt for choice. Bradley’s Head Amphitheatre, George’s Head Lookout, or Balmoral Beach are all great outdoor options. If you want to play it safe and stick to an indoor venue, Mosman Art Gallery is right around the corner. Or, you could mix it up completely. Why not host your wedding ceremony in the east and ship your guests to the north – literally! With some fantastic water transfers available to you like Rosman Ferries, you can have your guests there in a jiffy. Spots like McKell Park at Darling Point are a stone throw to a nearby wharf where your guests can embark and disembark via the Taronga Zoo Wharf. If you’re worried about getting your guests up to the function space from the wharf, why not book the Zoo’s Sky Safari to travel via gondola.
The Taronga Centre has a few spaces depending on your group size. The View Restaurant seats up to 60 guests banquet, The Harbourview Terrace up to 150, and the Harbourview Ballroom up to 250. All of these spaces with incredible views. When you’re weighing up your options in a practical sense – the ease of parking for your guests, ease of bumping in and out particularly to the Harbourview Terrace and Ballroom, really win my heart a million times over.
While the view does speak for itself, the space at the Harbourview Terrace and Harbourview Ballroom are incredibly versatile. The Taronga Centre Epicure events team are incredibly experienced and enthusiastic in helping to facilitate the most extravagant event. And if you are thinking about hosting your wedding at The Taronga Centre, we’d love to help plan yours and show you just how versatile the space at the Taronga Centre is.
