Brilliant Zoo. The exhibits are so well designed. The animals must feel like they are in their own habitat.

I know there's been some reviews about lots of animals not available to see, but you can certainly tell the zoo is doing a lot of hard work to some of the enclosures so I expect some disruption! This didn't affect our day at all!!! We've got a busy 2 year old boy and he had a great day here!... More

It is a great idea for the Zoo to be open in February from 5.30 to 8 pm on a Thursday, so we took advantage of reasonable admission prices to head there along with many other people enjoying a balmy night out. Great to see families picnicking in the central grassed area. Sorry to say though, I thought the place... More

This is an awesome experience. The Zoo is beautifully laid out and acknowledges the animals' country of origin. It is a very close and personal visit with many opportunities to view the animals in close proximity as they go about their daily activities. The settings are well executed and allow companion animals to roam free such as giraffes, ostriches and... More

Very peaceful, animals well cared for, would recommended the guide tour of the bird enclosure. Overall a very good facility and well worth a few hours to explore on a good weather day.

Auckland zoo is surely a beautiful setting, but where are the animals?? Most places in the zoo seem eerrily empty, or we just a few species around. One stunningly beautiful exception to this general disappointment, is the stunningly beautiful Red Pandas.

I love the zoo. Its beyond my favourite place. The exhibits are amazing and the staff really helpful. Only things to be weary of with children is packing snacks as food is very expensive and a back pack to carry all the extra bits that you end up carrying. The only let down was that most of the animals we... More

My husband and I visited while in Auckland on holiday from the UK. I am generally unsure about animals in captivity but the reviews seemed good so we gave it a shot. I was so pleased to see how much work the zoo does for conservation and to help all the different animals. The animals looked well cared for and... More
