Day spent well

We had a lovely time with the kids as they enjoyed seeing new animals close up. It's a must do attraction in Auckland where you see kids interacting with nature.

Amazing day at the Zoo, grounds kept super clean and animals look well looked after. $28 per adult is very reasonable and one can easily spend the whole day here. The only negative would be the pricing for food in the cafe but then one can bring their own of this is a worry.

Disappointed! With tons of upcoming attractions in 2017, so few of animals to see! Not a good place to teach kids about variety of animals when there is any variety.

We only visited the NZ wildlife section of the zoo. The issue with urban zoos is that they don't have the expanse of wildlife parks and yet, in this case, try to recreate on a smaller scale the natural environment. As a consequence it can be difficult to see the animals that are on display as they may be lost... More

Went to this zoo as a kid and revisited it with a friend. On such a nice day the zoo is fun to walk around and see all of the various animals again. The people at the front gate were very nice and trying to find enclosures is easy as the paths are clearly signposted. With the animal feeding times... More

Had a wonderful time. Was an awesome experience getting to see animals like the Tasmanian Devil, and of course the Kiwi, in person. Only down part about the visit to the zoo was the Aussie Walkabout being under construction, and the Hippo just recently passing away. Otherwise it was a fun and entertaining experience even for a 20 year old... More

We arrived quite late in the day (4pm), so had to run around. However we managed to get to all of the areas, but failed to see all the animals. Think it was either feeding time or nap time! Even still it was a great few hours, the zoo was large with a good amount of area for the animals... More
