Whilst I'm not a fan of posing for the green screen photo on entry we had a lovely day.
Featuring many endangered species there was also a lot of information that was well presented for children.

Auckland Zoo is a lovely place to be on a sunny day, watching animals behaving as they are can make us feel nostalgic. Feeding time is another experience, you have to ask about the feeding time by the entrance. The theme should be picnic in the Zoo.

p.s. Don't expect to see a Kiwi on demand, as they are a very shy species.

An excellent zoo, wonderfully presented, always new things on the go.
Can be expensive for a family, but much better value than other options, like the movies, for how long you can stay.

Very easy to get too by bus from central Auckland. $5 each way.
Went to see the kiwi however didn't see one (they have big enclosure but couldn't spot any).

Zoo is ok but I'm sure it would be a lot better in the summer months, most animals seemed to be asleep or in different cages (not on display).

All in all its ok to kill a few hours but compared to other zoos not the best
