The Melbourne Zoo is home to over 320 different animals from Australia and all over the world. It is just 4 kilometres to the north of Melbourne and can be accessed easily by car, railway or tram. There is also plenty of parking for visitors and guests. Opened in 1892, the Melbourne Zoo is the oldest in Australia and a walk through the Asian and African Rainforests will make you feel like you are exploring another country. Visitors can view the Asian elephants along the elephant tail and get a look at the gorillas in the rainforest. This location provides a perfectly relaxing setting and the function rooms make it possible to host various events.
Whether you are organizing a business function, team building exercise or a Melbourne wedding, the corporate function rooms are ideal. The Zoo has four function rooms and can be set up according to your preferences and needs. With indoor space that offer scenic views outdoor space for a much needed breath of fresh air and lush green views all around, you get everything you need in one fine location.
As far as catering is concerned, these services are outsourced by the zoo. If you require music you may wish to look into Melbourne bands for hire at Blue Avenue. You can arrange your own menu with specific dietary needs while ensuring a delicious meal for everyone. You can also stipulate your seating requirements and put in requests for additional equipment if needed. Each of the function rooms holds a different number of people so you will be set up in a room of the appropriate size.
Regarding team building exercises, the zoo itself arranges 90 minute workshops on how a positive and stimulating culture is created at the zoo and what the five freedoms for animals are. You can also enjoy some team building fun by allowing your group to race through the zoo. Each team can be given tasks to perform in order to encourage them to work together. By using one of the function rooms for three days in between or after your meeting, your staff will be entitled to enjoy some team building exercises too.
