As a solo traveler with a few days to kill before starting a work posting I decided to take a trip to the zoo. Despite it being the middle of winter here in Auckland the zoo was still full of families enjoying the midwinter holidays - always a good sign for an attraction.
The entry price was reasonable especially compared to some similar venues in the UK (and unlike the UK a map of the park was included with the ticket), the food was of good price and was well priced. All the staff I encountered were friendly and knowledgeable about the area they worked in.
The zoo had a fantastic variety of wildlife from all across the world and plenty of native NZ species. I felt very pleased to see a Kiwi as another visitor said this was her fourth visit to the zoo and it was the first time she had seen one!
In terms of transportation there is plenty of parking near the zoo and it is easy to get a bus to just outside the zoo. The public transport is reliable and well-priced.
Overall I would say this is a great day out for families and travelers looking for something to do in the day.
