Love this zoo

Nice

loverly

where the kids just love going

So much to see especially with kids of various ages. Time your visit to take in a talk from a local expert at the zoo. Our favorite was the spider monkey talk!

I have been there so many time and we never tire of it. There is always something new to see and experience

You can see something new each time you go. Children or myself never tire of the zoo.

One of our favourite places in Auckland. Watching the animals works for the whole family. Always an in-depth discussion on which ones to see first!

Great recommendation Rebecca - love your image.

It’s such a cool place, a fun day out in the sunshine and the animal enclosures are really well done

The best zoo I have ever been to in the whole wide world! So animal friendly with natural enclosures and just a nice day out. Try to catch some of the shows!
