Friends of the Zoo membership options and prices

Experience Auckland Zoo every day and be the first to know what's going on with our animals and keepers.



Flexi membership is the perfect gift for someone small who loves the Zoo. The membership is in the name of a child (15 years or under) and includes a guest pass for any accompanying adult.



Family membership is great value if there is more than one zoo lover in your family. Two adults and up to three children each get their own individual membership passes. That way you can visit separately or all together and noone misses out!



Adult membership is for anyone aged 15 years or over.



Couple membership is an opportunity for a whole year's worth of dates and quality time together. Plus, if you have young children under four years of age, this type of membership also allows you to bring them along for free, with either or both of you.



Senior membership (65 years and above) offers a concession price for those who have extra time to indulge their love of wildlife.



Student membership offers a concession price for secondary and tertiary students (aged 15 years or over and with valid ID).​


Additional children

You can modify your Flexi or Family membership by adding an additional child, so no one misses out!

If you have a family with more than three children, you can simply add on as many additional dependent children as you like to your Family membership.

When added to a Flexi pass, an additional child also enables the 'guest' adult to accompany the additional child, with or without the first named child.


Cub Pass

​Cub Passes can be assigned to Flexi, Family and Couple memberships.

A Cub Pass is for children who are aged from 0-3 years. Although these children are free to enter Auckland Zoo, sometimes they want their own personalised membership pass with their own photo, and a Cub Pass allows for this.

Another great benefit of the Cub Pass is the adult using the 'guest' flexi pass can bring in any of the children on the same flexi membership.

To qualify for our Cub Pass, children must be under four years of age for at least the first six months of the membership.​
