Walk on the wild side at Wellington Zoo
200 Daniell Street, Newtown, Wellington
Nestled in the hills of Newtown, discover more than 500 native and endangered exotic animals at the 13-hectare zoo. Grab a zoo map and check out snow leopard sisters Asha and Manju in their purpose-built habitat, see a lemur hanging from a tree, spot the red panda, or be entertained by the chimpanzees. Explore the walk-through New Zealand precinct, hop into the Australian area where kangaroos roam or spy native birds like kea soaring overhead. Fun for the entire family.
