Auckland Zoo

visitor information

There's lots to see and do all year round at Auckland Zoo, including events, animal encounters, behind-the-scenes experiences and more!

If you're planning a visit to the Zoo this weekend (25 and 26 March), a heads up that Pasifika Festival is happening next door at Western Springs, and there will be increased traffic and parking restrictions in the area.

We will have security at the entrance to the main zoo carpark who will be monitoring and allowing access to people who are visiting the Zoo. However, we highly recommend arriving early, as in previous years, the carpark has filled up very quickly on Pasifika weekend. Learn m​ore on​​
