  • Awesome place. A must visit if you have extra time in Auckland. It does have an eating joint. You can also plan to stay there overnight but that needs prior reservation. The kid section was great. A must go place if you have kids with you. You can spend half a day over here.
  • Wonderful way to spend a rainy day in Auckland. Super informative. Lots to see. Lots of photo opportunities. The penguins are just beautiful..... the moment you enter into see the penguins you get a strong smell of fish.... their staple diet so it can't be avoided. The conveyor belt would have to be a highlight..... just didnt want to get off as each time we went around we saw something different each time. The staff were friendly and obliging from the moment we got there til the moment we left. Phone solely for taxis was a great edition.
