Auckland Zoo

All year round

Auckland Zoo is home to the largest collection of wildlife in New Zealand, set in 17 hectares of lush parkland and just minutes from central Auckland.

At the heart of all Auckland Zoo’s work and activities is its mission, ‘to bring people together to build a future for wildlife’. Auckland Zoo plays a vitally important role in breeding, research and recovery programmes for threatened wildlife. A portion of your ticket goes towards the Auckland Zoo Conservation Fund to support both local and international field-based projects. All year round. Last ticket sale 3.30pm.

Approximately 90% of Auckland Zoo is accessible by wheelchair, and 70% by mobility scooter. A map explaining inaccessible areas is available free of charge on request from the cashiers or at the Zoo's Information Centre near the main entrance. Should you require a caregiver to accompany you at the Zoo, they will receive free entry. Be sure to advise cashiers upon entry and they will process for you. Mobility Scooters are welcome and are also available for $15 to hire. Wheelchairs are small and medium so they can easily navigate as much of our terrain as possible. Booking essential and will require a bond. Auckland Zoo in conjunction with Autism NZ have developed a Story for Understanding - Staying Safe at Auckland Zoo. On their website.


Auckland Zoo is on Motions Road, just west of downtown Auckland and next to Western Springs Reserve and Museum of Transport and Technology (MOTAT). See the Auckland transport website for public transport options The MOTAT trams provide transportation between the two venues.


Accessible car parking is available in the Motions Road car park, closest to the main entrance to the Zoo, for vehicles displaying a current mobility parking permit.
