Tucked away in the hills yet just 10 minutes from downtown, Zealandia is the hidden gem of Wellington. A park with a host of birds, reptiles and other indigenous wildlife for you to marvel at, you'll get to witness these threatened species in a habitat where they are protected against predators.
This award winning sanctuary this is one of the best places to see rare and endangered native wildlife in their natural environment. With the help of a specially-built predator-proof fence, see threatened species once again thriving just minutes from downtown Wellington.
Begin your visit by exploring the exhibition in the Visitor Centre and then head out into the sanctuary for a self-guided walk. Experience some of New Zealand’s most iconic residents, such as the tuatara, New Zealand’s living dinosaur; the kaka, a playful bush parrot; saddleback, hihi and many more. This is a must do for visitors to Wellington!
The sanctuary is an outdoor walking experience, which takes place on a range of paved and unpaved paths.
