Maintenance works

Auckland Zoo is constantly changing with new animal arrivals, births and improvements to the Zoo grounds. We regret any inconvenience that maintenance work may cause during your visit.

Animals off-display, areas under construction or undergoing maintenance:

  • Our leopard tortoises are currently off-display for the winter.
  • The blue egg slide at KidZone is closed due to major construction in the area.
  • Due to maintenance, our meerkats are currently off-display in our meerkat tunnel enclosure.

If you have any questions, please contact the Zoo's Information Centre on (09) 360 3805.
