Wellington Zoo hosts annual Neighbours’ BBQ

Wellington Zoo is hosting its 9th annual Neighbours’ BBQ this Thursday 30 January, from 5-8pm.

Every year the Zoo works with the Wellington City Council to invite its closest neighbours, including Wellington City Council housing tenants, to visit the Zoo for free after hours.

“We love meeting our neighbours, and we look forward each year to treating them to a night at their Zoo,” says Chief Executive, Karen Fifield.

“It’s a way to make Wellington Zoo accessible to all members of our community – to get them involved in all that’s happening at the Zoo, and connect them with the animals that they live near.”

“The evening is always great fun, with a free sausage sizzle, ice creams for kids, face-painting, and special animal talks and enrichment activities.”

“We recently opened Neighbours, our new walk-through Australian precinct, which is now home to four feisty Tasmanian Devils. This year’s event will be a special opportunity to give our local neighbours a tour of this fantastic new part of the Zoo!”
