Zealandia - Venue Hire


Function Rooms Wedding Venues

Zealandia is a non-profit organisation, so holding your wedding or event at Zealandia makes a valuable contribution towards conservation, eco-restoration and education.

Conveniently located, just ten minutes from the centre of Wellington, an event held at Zealandia is bound to last in the memories of your guests.  The combination of tranquil bush and wildlife, with the comfortable and airy indoor spaces makes this a perfect spot for almost any function.

The lush native forest and the chorus of birdsongs create a magical setting for weddings.  Ceremonies can be held by the tree-fringed lake, where the bridal party can arrive via boat. The setting also makes for stunning wedding photos.  After the ceremony, up to 110 guests can walk up to the sunny Rata Cafe for food, drinks and dancing.

Zealandia also accommodates less romantic functions, including corporate events, holiday parties or team-building events.  Cocktail events held on the lawn are always a hit.  The main foyer on the ground floor also has AV capabilities, making it perfect for events involving a presentation.
