We haven't been for six to eight months and they have made great improvements! the new tastier devil enclosure is awesome, the meerkat enclosure around by the tunnels looks great and the otters seem to really enjoy the old porcupine enclosure. There are too many improvements too mention, looking forward to seeing the exotic birds having much more space.

Well worth visit to this great zoo in Auckland. Fantastic value for money only $25 for an adult ticket, lots of great animals to see you can even do a close up with some animals at an extra cost. The staff kindly loaned me an electric scooter as I'm on crutches at the moment!

I can't get enough of this place. Every time I visit Auckland I call in with the kids. It's reasonably priced enough to justify a two hour trip, or you can make a whole day of it and take a picnic. The wide display of animals is world class and the environment surrounds are stunning too. Make it an annual... More

Started the visit in a torrential downpour which fortunately cleared up and allowed us to experience the zoo after a freshening up. The New Zealand area was a highlight, well set out, good signage and allowed you to see the birds up close. The other animals were also in lovely enclosures and the addition of zoo volunteers who were happy... More

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.
