Australia Day At Wellington Zoo

Australia Day At Wellington Zoo


The Devils are here . . . and we're celebrating their arrival at Wellington Zoo this Australia Day, Sunday 26th January.

Highlights will include special Tasmanian Devil talks throughout the day, face-painting, Aussie-themed games and prizes, stilt walkers, music, and giveaways from Classic Hits.

It'll be ripper. We hope to see you there!


If you haven't visited the Zoo in a while, you can check out the new daily animal talk timetable on our website.

These special talks and demonstrations make your visit more fun and help you learn more about the amazing animals at Wellington Zoo – you can get up close to Rokan the Sumatran Tiger during his morning feed, meet our cheeky troop of Chimpanzees, and even hand-feed our two beautiful Giraffes. And don't miss the brand new Tasmanian Devil talk at 1.30pm each day!

Summer at the Zoo
Share your photos


It's summer at Wellington Zoo!

On top of being the only place in the city to get up close to both exotic animals and native wildlife, the Zoo is also a beautiful space to relax and enjoy the the beauty of nature. Nestled in the town belt, the Zoo grounds and gardens are blooming with native plants and flowers – the perfect spot to sit and enjoy a picnic lunch.

There's also heaps of stuff for kids to do in between visiting the animals – the sandpit and trampoline in Neighbours in particular are both hits these summer holidays.


As part of our Zoo community, we value your opinion. We'd love for your to take a minute to share your thoughts on your latest Zoo visit on TripAdvisor, which you can do here.

Pukeahu Park : ANZAC 100th Anniversary Dawn Service In Pictures

Roughly 18,000 people gathered this morning at Pukeahu Memorial Park for the Anzac day centenary. Anticipating the large turnout, patrons arrived as early as 4.30. It was virtually impossible to get near the Memorial after 5am. By 6, the crowds on Taranaki Street had stretched as far back as the Z Petrol station.

The screens erected around the park displayed the live events to those who had turned up. The heat generated by the huge number of people caused many to take a turn. Medics and ambulances were on hand for the fainting crowd members. Only twenty minutes into the ceremony, one medic said they had already dealt with 15 to 20 spells. More>>
