April school holidays

Friday 28 April 2017 - Sunday 30 April 2017

Take a journey through Aotearoa at Auckland Zoo these holidays and discover the natural treasures living in New Zealand’s backyard.

On your trek of our Te Wao Nui precinct, encounter stunning wildlife - from our 'living dinosaur', the tuatara, and cheeky mountain parrot - the kea, to little penguin, tuna (longfin eels) and kiwi, to name just a few!

See and find out what makes New Zealand's animals so special and unique, and why they are taonga (treasures).

With your complimentary Auckland Zoo map, collect an animal stamp at each of the 7 treasure locations. You can also take your photo with our 'larger than life' treasures, and get along to the scheduled animal encounters.

Be sure to stop by the competition trailer and enter for your chance to win a wildlife adventure, including return flights and four nights' accommodation for your family (2 adults / 2 children) to a whio habitat and a day out with a Department of Conservation Ranger!
