Auckland Zoo

Visit the best of New Zealand in your backyard

Thursday 18 May 2017 - Wednesday 31 May 2017

Discover New Zealand's natural treasures at Auckland Zoo!

On your trek of our New Zealand precinct, Te Wao Nui, 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).

Plus, visit us any time from 9 March - 31 May, and you'll be in 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!
