Lucky for us the weather held off the rain and we had an enjoyable morning walking around the zoo. It was difficult to find a park as first thing is very popular with young families, so if you leave..... more »

We love Auckland Zoo ! It’s fabulous for young and old . We have been been going for quite a number of years. Always find something new. The animals are very well looked after the grounds are very clean and tidy and well maintained. Lots of different lunch options. Great fun play areas for the children. Water fountains and picnic tables . Clean bathrooms. Love Auckland Zoo . It’s definitely worth a visit or Two !!!!
We had a great time at the zoo. If you buy your tickets the day before you visit online you save $5. There are lots of zookeeper talks throughout the day. The highlight was definitely seeing 3 kiwis during feeding time. There is a good variety of animals and the zoo is currently undergoing major development for the new enclosure. Also great that they no longer use single use coffee cups.
