Beautiful setting

I am not a big fan of zoos but this one in Auckland is well designed with many displays, especially the aviaries, that feel close to the natural environment.

After visiting the zoo in 2007 and watching the T.V. program on Auckland Zoo we looked forward to our re visit. But we felt let down on visiting again in Febuary 2015. as many of the cages/area's where the animals where kept had over grown plants in them and you couldn't see the animals because of this. Also the last... More

Hats off to the Auckland zoo. Who else would have thought of "boo at the zoo" or a kids Halloween party.. zoousic series and so many fun activities. Our family loves the zoo and the staff are amazing.

It was a wet day which isn't their fault but feel this is over priced on a day like we had as most of the animals weren't out so we didn't get to see them. So if it was me I would offer a reduced rate when the weather stops the viewing of the animals.

The photos we had taken before we were inside were the most exciting part of the visit. It was a wet day and if the animals weren't in their cages because of cleaning or because they were away for the winter, just really lame. Only the pink flamingos were exciting as I hadn't seen them before, we weren't the only... More

Great selection of animals to see both native to New Zealand and abroad. I went on a rainy day and still overall found the experience worth the trip. Be sure to check out the Kiwi!

Great place to visit for all the family. Easily accessed by car and bus. Lots of animals and a well developed native section. The staff and volunteers are knowledgeable and there are interactive artifacts to enhance your visit. At certain times of the day there are different animal experiences where you can learn more. Definitely worth a visit.
