From the country's trademark kiwis to rare Sumatran tigers and sun bears, get close to species from the four corners of the world at Wellington Zoo. The oldest institution of its kind in New Zealand, the zoo has over a century-long tradition in the housing and preservation of animals. Today, the zoo plays home to over 100 different species, including insects, birds, fish, reptiles, and mammals. Numerous interactive programs let you pet a cheetah, feed a lion, play with meerkats, or even spend the night. Snacks, drinks, and refreshments are available on site, and all the facilities are wheelchair and stroller accessible. Put Wellington Zoo on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Wellington sightseeing planning tool.

  • Simply amazing! Great for families, kids learning, never gets boring. Each visit you discover something new. Great talks and shows. Animals are held in great humane conditions, you can experience awesome animal encounters and you can even ask the vets at the nest live questions.
  • Brilliant. Great for all ages. Interactive. Interesting facts to read as you go around. Educational. With great messages about what we can do to help protect and support and restore our animal kingdom .
