Awesome zoo. This is fab for kids and adults and you can easily spend all day walking around. Kids area for play is great to. Food is reasonable considering what you would expect to pay but there is picnic areas for you to eat if you want to take your own. Have revisited several times for a day out.
This is definitely one of the best places for a family weekend with kids in Auckland. The location is very convenient and car park is usually not a problem. The annual admission is also quite affordable and facilities inside are well maintained. On the downside, there are not many animals compared to other zoos I have visited.
Got ourselves an annual pass for the zoo, it's definitely worth it. We usually make a trip once a week to see the animals, the kids love it and love running around chasing the seagulls on the grassy lawn. Animals enclosures are clean and well maintained. Lots of options for food and drinks. We spend a few hours here every week if the weather is ok.
Great zoo with lots of happy animals in a variety of natural habitats. Lots of interactive things for kids to do and play with. Food at the cafe can be expensive, but you can bring in your own food for picnics.
