Late Fridays at the Zoo

Open 9.30am - 7.30pm every Friday in March

Half Price Entry at 4pm or later

Ever wondered what happens at Wellington Zoo as the sun goes down?

Throughout March the Zoo will remain open until 7.30pm every Friday, giving everyone an opportunity to experience the Zoo at dusk. On late Fridays, Zoo entry will be half price at 4pm or later.

Evening visitors will be able to enjoy the full Zoo experience, with special animal talks as well as evening Close Encounters available each Friday - but be quick, limited spaces available! 

For a bite to eat there’s a special $20 Margherita pizza and Allganics drink deal available from Mojo Café between 4pm - 7.30pm, and other food and drink options from the Grazing Post inside the Zoo.

Late Fridays at the Zoo starts on Friday 1 March and will continue on 8, 15, 22 and 29 March.
