New Zealand’s first zoo, Wellington Zoo, is a hillside conservation paradise that leaves 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. Chat with our vets as they treat native wildlife at The Nest Te Kōhanga, the Zoo's state-of-the-art animal hospital. Watch the keepers feed the sociable romp of otters and the cheeky troop of chimpanzees and book a Close Encounter with the red pandas, capybaras, meerkats, giraffes, sun bear, tiger, or the collection of reptiles and invertebrates. Enjoy a range of tasty snacks and beverages from REX Tremendous and Banana Bar, and browse the Zoo Shop for the perfect souvenir.
