We're Open At Alert Level 2

As always, the safety and wellbeing of our customers, team members and communities is our top priority and we’ll be following Ministry of Health guidelines. For visitors this includes QR code scanning and wearing of face masks, as well as monitoring the number of visitors coming in to our facility. All our public talks are postponed at Alert Level 2 – 10am Pania feed, all Penguin Keeper talks and the 2pm Shark Feeding. This is due to difficulty maintaining 2m distancing during these events.
