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!
January Holiday Programme
Calling all Zooper Heroes

Our popular school holiday programme is mostly sold out, but don't despair – there are still a few spots available for budding superheroes next Thursday 30 January!

Your little ones will get to meet the 'Zooper Heroes' in Hero HQ, create their own superhero identity, and join us on our mission to save endangered animals. Book online now!
What's On in The Nest Te Kōhanga
Recent and upcoming patients


The vets in The Nest Te Kōhanga are very busy at this time of year, with lots of native patients to look after as well as all the animals at Wellington Zoo!

Follow us on Facebook and find out about cool procedures in advance – whether it's an Otter health check, a Pygmy Marmoset microchipping, or a Chimpanzee at the dentist!
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.
