What's on at the Zoo

Close Encounters

Covid-19 Update

While the Zoo is open during Level 2, we’re taking extra precautions for the safety of our visitors, staff and animals, so we will be operating a little differently for now.

To ensure your safety and to help with physical distancing during Level 2 there will be no animal talks and other special products like Close Encounters and Behind the Scenes experiences will also be suspended. Some areas of the Zoo will be closed so visitors can maintain physical distancing.

We really appreciate your patience and understanding.

 

Talk Times

Due to the COVID-19 alert level change, animal talks will be suspended until Tuesday 29 June at this stage.

bus

The No. 23 buses stop right outside the Zoo.

This service runs from Wellington Station to the Zoo every hour on weekdays and weekends. 

Alternatively, you can take one of the buses to the Wellington Hospital first (for example the No.1 and No. 3 ) and transfer at the Wellington Hospital hub (stop C).

You can find timetables and more details at Metlink.

bike or car

From the city, your car trip will take less than 10 minutes. Just follow the brown Zoo signs, or look for signs to Newtown.
If you’re on your bike – same goes, and there is a bike rack at the front of the Zoo.

how to find us

Wellington Zoo is in Newtown, about 10 minutes from the city. We are located at 200 Daniell Street, Newtown, Wellington 6021. Find us on Google Maps.

parking

There is limited free car parking around the Zoo so it’s a case of early bird catches the worm. You’ll find them right outside the Zoo or in the Newtown Park car park next door.

We also have four designated mobility car parks in the Newtown Park car park right next to the Zoo, and one right outside Mojo at the Zoo.
