The zoo had quite a number of attractions and was worth visiting. When a couple of enclosures were closed for renovation, the price of the tickets was reduced. Overall, had a great time there.

Great place to visit when going to Auckland. It is close to central Auckland and takes about 3-4 hours to look at all the animals. The zoo looked very clean and the enclosures looked very well maintained. The price is reasonable as well and overall...More

You can do tours. But I wouldn't reccomend it. The zoo is so well sign posted. But tours are cheap if you really want to.
