“Great day”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014

We visited the zoo in mid April and the weather was great, I imagine it would be very hot in summer.
The environment is clean and tidy and the staff were helpful and friendly. I was amazed the photo that was taken turned out so well as my teenage son was grumpy when we arrived.

Thanks to Auckland Zoo staff for doing a great job at caring for the animals and the environment

“Excellent place for kids and adult.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 June 2014 via mobile

The day we went to the zoo was a cloudy. But photos are come out beautifully :) we cannot see everything in one day as we arrived to the zoo pass mid day. Some of the shows already finished. However, there will be less people around each spot :) Our 3.5 yo son just love it !! He had a good run around and explore himself at the zoo. Food inside the zoo is limited. But the price is very reasonable and coffee are great. We had our lunch at Weta Cafe at the front entrance. Will definitely back to the zoo next time to explore more !!

“Great setting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2014

A great family day out. It is nicely set out in gardens and pathways, with good viewing areas for the animals. All animals seem healthy and cared for. You would need to allow a good half day at the least to enjoy everything. Best to make a day of it and take a picnic lunch and drinks with you, although you can buy food there.

“Very Clean”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2014

Very clean. It was a surprise for me seeing a Zoo which is very clean and it wasn't smelly at all, ha ha well probably its due to the chill weather, but we just loved the environment. Animals looks so calm and basically being healthy and it was a good experience.

“A bit sad”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 June 2014

Last time I went the poor old elephant was just pacing up and down looking lonely and depressed it was awful to see. The tiger was much the same the enclosures are too small and the animals are bored unlike Hamilton zoo where the animals seem much more cared about and happy.
