We had a very nice afternoon. This zoo is really big but has not that many animals. The enclosures are really big which is awesome for the animals. Our first encounter with New-Zealand animals as the Kea and Kiwi. Cool!!!

Zoo provided an opportunity to see some native New Zealand wildlife, like the Kiwi and Tasmanian Devil. Lovely setting with many aviaries and opportunity to view a lot of New Zealand vegetation. Other than the kiwi, which are housed with lighting that allows these nocturnal birds to be active during visiting hours, a number of animals were like those in... More

Volunteers at the zoo were amazing and enhanced my visit tremendously. Best cafe is in the zoo, skip the one at the entrance. Go right from the start, if you go left it's rather disappointing and doesn't have an established feel and the enclosures not great. The rest of the zoo is fantastic, very close to the animals.

During our whole tip this has to be the Kids favorite part. Amazing animals and friendly staff. A bit crowded but have to say it was pretty cool.

We had a lovely time with the kids as they enjoyed seeing new animals close up. It's a must do attraction in Auckland where you see kids interacting with nature.

Amazing day at the Zoo, grounds kept super clean and animals look well looked after. $28 per adult is very reasonable and one can easily spend the whole day here. The only negative would be the pricing for food in the cafe but then one can bring their own of this is a worry.

Disappointed! With tons of upcoming attractions in 2017, so few of animals to see! Not a good place to teach kids about variety of animals when there is any variety.
