“The best little zoo in the world”

Wellington Zoo is a magical place of learning and fun, leaving visitors with a sense of wonder and respect for nature and a belief in the need for a sustainable co-existence between wildlife and people.

Our aim is to offer you a wild day out packed with learning and fun. With around 500 animals of all shapes and sizes to check out, we’re sure you’ll leave with a sense of wonder and respect for the beauty of nature.

In 1906 Wellington Zoo became the first zoo in New Zealand. Over the years it has truly become part of the fabric of the city, as generation after generation has passed through our gates to visit and learn all about our wonderful animals. Our strong commitment towards animal welfare and the environment is at the heart of everything we do.

Choose from six of our amazing animal encounters: Meerkat, Lemur, Cheetah, Lion, Giraffe and Red Panda. Go on a sleepover right here at the Zoo and spend a magical night with our animals.
