Well worth visit to this great zoo in Auckland. Fantastic value for money only $25 for an adult ticket, lots of great animals to see you can even do a close up with some animals at an extra cost.
The staff kindly loaned me an electric scooter as I'm on crutches at the moment!

I can't get enough of this place. Every time I visit Auckland I call in with the kids. It's reasonably priced enough to justify a two hour trip, or you can make a whole day of it and take a picnic. The wide display of animals is world class and the environment surrounds are stunning too. Make it an annual family outing for those old or young.

Started the visit in a torrential downpour which fortunately cleared up and allowed us to experience the zoo after a freshening up. The New Zealand area was a highlight, well set out, good signage and allowed you to see the birds up close. The other animals were also in lovely enclosures and the addition of zoo volunteers who were happy to talk about the animals was a nice touch.

I have high expectations when it comes to zoos, but this one did not let me down at all. It is definitely a great place to stop by when in Auckland, whether you're traveling as a family, a couple, or with friends. The zoo is very reasonably priced ($20 NZD) and they have some animals that I had never seen at my local zoo in Columbus, Ohio. It was clean, the volunteers were friendly and helpful, and there were shows scheduled at various times throughout the day.

I would plan to spend about 2 hours as a couple and maybe 2-3 if you have children. There is public transportation that takes you to the zoo as well, but the bus route depends on where you're coming from. A word of caution on that because if the bus driver knows you're a tourist, they'll overcharge you.

Quite a large zoo. Even spotted the kiwis, even though they tried to stay hidden. Spent about 4 hours looking around. Very impressed with the number of eateries within the zoo.
