“The Zoo team were amazing to collaborate with and were dedicated to creating an outstanding environment for both animals and visitors. They really understood the power of architecture to enhance and shape visitor experience, creating an active hub at the centre of the Zoo which can also be an oasis.”
The Zoo’s head of Zoo environment, design, and construction Monica Lake says the café is a winner on multiple fronts.
“Te Puna’s comfortable all-weather space provides stunning views across the South East Asia Jungle Track, making this landmark café is a meaningful contributor to the Zoo’s mission: To bring people together to build a future for wildlife.
Along with its architectural beauty, Te Puna offers visitors fantastic all-day dining with a great selection of meals, snacks, and treats. This summer Te Puna will also be open for dinner during the Zoo Lates series – evening openings every Thursday (4pm to 8pm) beginning on Thursday 12 January and running through until Thursday 2 March.
