Get up close to a range of native and exotic species at Brooklands Zoo, a well-managed and family-focused zoo. With farmyard animals, otters, meerkats, and even Bolivian squirrel monkeys, visitors are treated to great views of the abundant mammalian life that has its home here. A walk-through aviary offers new perspectives on New Zealand's avian life, while the daily feeding of the Capuchin monkeys provides an educational form of entertainment. A playground and numerous picnic tables make the zoo a comfortable space for the whole family to explore at their own pace.

  • Something in Netherlands will never occur, a free Zoo. It's certainly small and meant for the little ones but we have had a fun experience. There are about a half an hour and it is actually a better version of a Petting Zoo in Netherlands since there are monkeys and etc. are. Sure is nice to take a look at.

  • It was fun and amazing, the coffee wasn't that great but over all it was very relaxing. My dad sister and I went on a 4 hours walk around it.
  • Great Free Zoo for all the family
  • For a free-admission zoo, this is a nail little zoo that my two-year old enjoyed it.
  • Great place for kids, and free! How in the world? This area really makes for a fun day for the family.
  • It is a small zoo, there are monkeys, farm animals, otters and birds, if you want to go to a proper zoo in Taranaki, go to Pouakai zoo
