"Auckland Zoo and Western Springs." Auckland Zoo Tip by Robdaz

Auckland Zoo, Auckland: 13 reviews and 26 photos

I have been to a few Zoos and I must say this is at the bottom of the my list. Although I have been here a few times mainly for my daughter. So not a must see in Auckland unless you are with a group of kiddies.

The unique feature of the Zoo is showcase of the African plains with Pridelands. You can watch the giraffe and see zebra, rhino and springbok quietly grazing. There is also a unique showcase of NZ's coastal habitat where can little blue penguins, sealions and shore birds.

Just next to the Park to the right is Western Springs Park. There is a very good children playground and facilty under shady trees where you can spent a relaxing day.

There is also a lot of white and blacks swans here, ducks, goose and pukekos. ( you can see pics of this blue pukekos in my intro page)

Address: Motions Rd, Western Springs, Auckland.
