Auckland Zoo is proud to serve palm oil-free and free-range food at our four cafes.
There are also a number of picnic areas around Auckland Zoo - sit back and relax with your purchased or packed lunch while enjoying the sights and sounds of the Zoo!
Do not feed the animals - every animal enjoys its own specific, well-balanced diet. We hope that you enjoy some great food on your Zoo visit, but please do not feed any of it to our animals. Our keepers work hard to fulfil our animals' needs.
