Event Details

October School Holidays and the arrival of spring is the perfect time to venture into Auckland Zoo, immerse yourself in nature and spend quality time with your whanau!

These holidays, through Wildlife Wonders, the Zoo is proud to be supporting Mental Health Awareness Week, and its wonderful theme ‘Explore your way to wellbeing’ – Whāia te ara hauora, Whitiora.

On arrival, collect your Wildlife Wonders activity sheet to start exploring the Zoo and the ‘five ways of wellbeing’ stops. At each stop you can get active, learn, connect, or give (to yourself and others!) and also learn about how animals keep themselves well.

After your outdoor exploration, venture inside to The Domes. Here you can dance to your heart’s (and lungs!) content at the silent disco, build giant foam homes, enjoy cool craft activities, contribute to the community artwork wall and support a conservation project, or just chill out!
