I like the monkeys. Great way to spend a day with the family. Animals seemed happy and healthy, with plenty of space to roam around.

We had a great day with a picnic lunch to give the kids a break. The sun was shining which was great. As the kids are from the South Island they got their photo taken as they went through the gates which is a nice memorial if you wish to purchase them.
The zoo over the years has improved immensely and is now up with the Melbourne zoo and other overseas ones I have been to.

Originally we planned to join Auckland whale and dolphin watch but it was cancelled due to bad weather. We just got notification at 11:00am and so we couldn't go elsewhere like Bay of Islands that day. Auckland zoo was my backup plan but we found it was amazing and luckily we visited this zoo finally.

Due to the road construction near sky city, we couldn't find the bus stop and finally took taxi to Auckland zoo (around NZD$20 fee). Just 5 mins we arrived already. It was rainy that day but couldn't affect us.

We could see many animals closely, although they couldn't be touched. If you like animal, you must spend half day there.
