As a midwinter treat for all its hardy visitors, Wellington Zoo is again running its highly popular Winter Wednesday promotion throughout August.

Every visitor that makes a midweek trip to see our beautiful animals on any Wednesday throughout August will pay only $7 adult entry and $5 child entry.

“We were amazed to be named ‘Best and Most Fascinating Zoo’ by EscapeHere.com and we hope to welcome our community to enjoy a day at Wellington Zoo this August,” said James Araci, Group Manager Commercial Development.
