Auckland Zoo has reduced its admission prices as it progresses the biggest and most exciting development in its history – an expansive new precinct for South East Asian wildlife and a world-class immersive experience for visitors to open in 2020.

‘South East Asia’, which visitors can now see being created, is part of a Future Zoo 10-year renewals programme being funded through Auckland Council’s long-term plan. Featuring some of the world’s most stunning and threatened wildlife - Sumatran tigers, otters, orangutans, siamang gibbons, tomistoma (crocodiles), fish and other reptiles - it reflects the Zoo’s strong support for this region.

While just two animal species have left the Zoo to enable construction, the Zoo appreciates that its visitors’ experience can potentially be impacted.

Same-day/walk-up adult tickets for visitors have now reduced from $28.50 to $24, children (14-14) are $13, under 4s remain free, and booking in advance online offers everyone further substantial savings.
