The Top 5 Petting Zoos in Auckland
Kiwi Valley
308 Henderson Valley Road, Henderson, Auckland

Set in 18 acres of farmland in Henderson, the Kiwi Valley certainly has something for everyone. The focus is on rural activities that include hand feeding the animals, pony rides and much more.

Kids will have loads to do at Kiwi Valley - cuddle a bunny, hand-feed a lamb, pet a pig, ride a pony, get lost in the maze, enjoy a tractor trailer ride as well as feeding sheep, donkeys, ducks, chickens, alpacas and loads more.

There is also a decent cafe onsite - Flax Cafe - which serves the usual cafe food including a great kids menu.
