My young daughter and I were staying in Auckland Cbd and I thought I'd take my 11yo to the zoo. On getting directions from our hotel we jumped the bus and the bus driver dropped us right at the door. What a fantastic day we had. It is a great zoo accommodating many animals and birds. Exciting open range zoo... More

This Zoo is fantastic. I love the open feel it has and the sense of space that it has. The animals all seem well kept and the amount of room they all have is fantastic

Like the flip signage that explain about the animals and their habitat - very informative! My kids was sad as they couldn't able to see the kiwi bird as the enclosure was set in very dark settings to simulate the nocturnal environment.

Even though the winter weather tried to thwart our fun, the zoo was a great place to explore and entertained the family. Loved the aviaries and elephant as well as the Australian Walkabout. Nicely laid out and not too big, so it wasn't exhausting.

The zoo is well maintained with nice education activities for youth and children. Location very easy access just 15 mins bus distance from Auckland center. It's a... More
