Auckland Zoo, Auckland Reviews

  • Auckland Zoo is totally awesome ! It has a great collection of animals and I love the design and layout. Its easy to navigate and so beautiful. It’s definitely worth visiting especially if you have little kids. They have so much fun here. The place also has some cafes in case you want to grab a bite or rest up for a bit. This place is highly recommended.

  • I had no idea what to expect from Auckland zoo. Turns out it's awesome! They have a really wide mix of animals, from your traditional giraffes and the like, through to some weird and wonderful local animals. Seeing kiwis so close was amazing! Whilst I was there they had a bug exhibition on too which was well worth the extra entrance fee. All in all a really enjoyable day out for the family.

  • We visited Auckland for a few days and one of our goals was to visit the zoo. Auckland Zoo was well worth the trip. It is well maintained, has a good layout and a nice selection of animals that the children really enjoyed. In particular, the Galapagos Tortoises and South American parrots were excellent. The children also really enjoyed the African animals, and the elephants were a big hit. The New Zealand section is also well worth the time, as you get to see some of those harder to see birds and lizards you wouldn't normally see. We visited when the elephant show was on and the children were captivated. We spent 3 hours at the zoo, and saw mostly everything. Make sure you bring a hat on sunny days!

  • Came to New Zealand for vacation. Near the end of our vacation, we decided to visit the zoo and it was a good idea! Took about 2-3 hours to view everything. Finally saw a Kiwi bird, not one but two! The zoo have a nice layout. There was some animals that wasn’t on site but it was fine. It was a great day at the zoo. We had lots of fun.

  • The Auckland Zoo has a great section for New Zealand wildlife. I found the large open air mesh-covered NZ 🐦 "cage" (it was more like a small forest). This is were I met one of the zoo keepers feeding the birds, she was very nice and a great guide to all of the different kinda of birds. The parrots would pose on the rails making really easy to take photos. The kiwi bird exhibit is great but it is hard to take photos because its pretty dark. The rest of the zoo was pretty standard. The cafe at the zoo was a bit crowded but the setting was really nice and the food was great. All in all I would highly recommend the zoo as family day trip or as a chance for a tourist to see some of the native animals they missed on their trip.
