Can't wait to go back

The new orangutan exhibit was our favourite part, so awesome to see them swinging right over our heads! Also the tiger exhibit under construction looks well worth another visit for. The zoo staff showed their amazing customer service when they couriered a jacket to us in hamilton that we left behind. I couldn't speak more highly of them!

A must do for toddlers!
May 2021 • Family
Our toddler is at an age where she absolutely loves animals and this was a fantastic experience for her. While we’re not big on zoos/the idea of animals in captivity this was a great zoo. The park is well spread out and the animals appear to be well looked after from the limited knowledge we have on zoos. Wheelchair and pram friendly with great facilities and plenty of eats if you’re wanting a meal/snack while here. Currently under construction in one part, however this didn’t impact our experience. Would highly recommend for families with children

Decided to Randomly go to the Zoo. After going made me want to work in one. Giraffes are such beautiful creatures. All the animals were pretty cool. Was good day. 2 cafes in there. Be great when new part opens. Elephants are leaving. Good to see them. Seen in Thailand. :)
Friendly staff.

Great zoo, crap food
Apr 2021
We had a lovely time at the zoo, it's always lovely to see the animals and walk around the gardens. We had, however, an appalling lunch at Te Puna. It was very expensive and poor food, the wrapped sandwich I bought was stale on both sides and they charged $6.50 for a small post-mix soft drink. I returned the sandwich and the man behind the counter implied that all of the sandwiches would be stale and suggested a pie instead. If you go to the zoo, definitely take your own food.

Always fun

Lucky for us the weather held off the rain and we had an enjoyable morning walking around the zoo. It was difficult to find a park as first thing is very popular with young families, so if you leave it till afternoon, parking will be easier. The animals were a delight and I look forward to returning when the new enclosures are open.
