I have high expectations when it comes to zoos, but this one did not let me down at all. It is definitely a great place to stop by when in Auckland, whether you're traveling as a family, a couple, or with friends. The zoo is very reasonably priced ($20 NZD) and they have some animals that I had never seen... More

Quite a large zoo. Even spotted the kiwis, even though they tried to stay hidden. Spent about 4 hours looking around. Very impressed with the number of eateries within the zoo.

The zoo is wheelchair and pushchair friendly, with plenty of places to stop for a rest on a hot day. The animal enclosures seem quite large and the viewing spots are easily accessible for most people. A well laid out place where there is a chance to see both exotic and New Zealand natice creatures. Parking is not always easy... More

This is not a cage em in and gawk at em kind of zoo. The enclosures are large and spacious and not designed like cages and the zoo has a nursery and hospital with a very active conservation programme. The sheer size of the zoo allows for the spread out design and interactive enclosures. I take all of my overseas... More

This would be one of the best Zoo's we have been to. Certainly better than ones we have been to in Sydney and Adelaide. A must visit attraction.

Zoos are revenue gathering prisons for animals kept against there will in climates and environments barely held to a standard for them to stay alive. Auckland zoo is no exception and I recommend you go elsewhere for entertainment

Auckland Zoo is a must see. Wear comfortable shoes as it is a big place. Use your map and scheduled feeding times to plan your journey at the Zoo. Meerkats were especially cute, and the elephant demonstration should not be missed. Recommended for all ages.

This is one of the best zoos ever! The animals are kept in enclosures that allow them to move about freely while at the same time offering good viewing. The grounds are most attractive and have several options for a picnic or cafe-style meals. The New Zealand section gives a good idea of what the visitor might encounter in various... More
