If you have kids with you, don’t hesitate to visit this awesome zoo. Our favorites are the Galápagos tortoise and the golden tamarin. Most animals are easy to spot and you need half a day to see everything

Having visited a number of zoos around the world, I can honestly say that Auckland Zoo is world class. Some of the zoos I’ve seen in other countries made me want to cry with the dire small spaces for big animals - not Auckland zoo - the animal spaces are large and beautiful. Lots of green space.
The ticket prices are reasonable and there are family passes. The cafes on site are ‘okay’ - not amazing, but okay.
The only issue is the amount of construction happening at the moment. Around 25% of the zoo is not accessible currently, due to upgrades that are in progress. I think they should discount ticket prices while this is happening.
But it’s a great zoo. Definitely worth a visit when you are in Auckland.

Had an awesome time at the zoo recently. We did the galapagos tortoise experience. This was brilliant as we got to go into the enclosure and meet the animals. The best bit was that there was no pressure on the animals - we only got to touch them if THEY wanted to. They had to come to us first. It was absolutely amazing. One even liked getting his neck scratched so much he started drooling

I dont recommend the experience to kids but the actual zoo is definitely family friendly.

We went to the Auckland zoo on 24 May 2019. Very comfortable experience as the zoo was not crowded however many of the sections were going through an upgrading so they were closed. Toilets & the environment around the zoo were clean. There were free roam animals near the carpark as well.

We were a group of 5 including a toddler and the zoo was amazing! We loved the monkeys but the red panda was the highlight for us. Such a wonderful variety within a manageable walk. We would love to go back again after they have finished all the new exhibits
