Melbourne Zoo

Rainforest Room

Flemington Bridge (0.9 km)108

Melbourne Zoo is located in Parkville, a couple minutes away from the ever so busy Melbourne CBD.

Melbourne Zoo Events offers elegant function rooms to accommodate any style and size of gathering. All the function rooms and outdoor spaces can host a large number of different types of events for small and large groups, both indoor and outdoor. Three of Melbourne Zoo's spaces that are available for hire are the Rainforest Room, Bong Su and Leopard Lodge.

The Rainforest Room is a location of pure beauty and is our most popular space. With views over the award-winning Japanese Garden and Lake, the outside terrace is an ideal place to sample of glass of sparkling while savouring the tranquil surrounds. The inside of this light-filled venue features its own private animal exhibit – the lush forest habitat of the playful Tamarin monkeys. Perfect for conferences, cocktail parties, seated lunches and dinners and wedding receptions, the Rainforest Room can accommodate up to 80 guests.

With a permanent dance floor for less formal occasions, The Rainforest Room contains a private bridal suite or green room. Cathedral ceilings and floor to ceiling windows invite an abundance of natural light, creating a soft ambience perfect for photography. This versatile venue can also be divided into two sections to cater to smaller gatherings or break out areas.

The Rainforest Room is perfect for: Cocktail Party venue Melbourne | Birthday venue Melbourne | Wedding venue Melbourne | Engagement party venue Melbourne | Baby shower venue Melbourne | Creative venue Melbourne | Private Dining Room Melbourne | Presentation venue Melbourne | Networking venue Melbourne | Conference venue Melbourne | Corporate Function venue Melbourne | Christmas Party venue Melbourne
