Wellington Zoo


Attractions For Kids

It can be difficult to find a car park on busy days. You to catch a bus from the city centre or park a little further away and walk up to the Zoo.

Wellington Zoo offers visitors a sense of fun and wonder.  It's also a place to learn and appreciate the need to build a sustainable co-existence between people and wildlife.

Situated on 13 hectares and close to the city centre, the Zoo houses more than 500 animals and well over 100 species.  Kids will enjoy the 'close encounters' which offers the chance to get close to many of the animals including cheetahs, giraffes and lions!

Wellington Zoo prides itself in its conservation and has a number of critically endangered species including Sumatran Tigers and Cotton Top Tamarins.  It is also the only one in New Zealand to house Sun Bears and White Cheeked Gibbons.

Opening Hours:

Monday - Sunday:  9.30am - 5.00pm
