Brooklands Zoo, New Plymouth

(4.6/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web)
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.
