Make your own way to the Zealandia Visitor Center, just outside of Wellington city center, in time for a 10am, 11am, or 1pm departure (depending on tour time selected). After meeting your guide and small group of no more than 10 participants, set out on a 2-hour walking tour of the park.
Learn more about Zealandia and its pioneering conservation efforts as you follow your guide around the park’s walkways, exploring the lush forests and wetlands. Along the way, stop at viewpoints and feeding stations, and look out for green gecko, tuatara, and native New Zealand birds. Kākā (bush parrot), kakariki, tūī, tīeke (saddleback), hihi, and bellbirds are all common sightings, and you might even spot rare birds including the flightless takahē.
After 2 hours exploring the vast parklands, your tour ends back at the Visitor Center.
