Zealandia is the world’s first fully fenced urban eco-sanctuary and home to some of New Zealand’s most extraordinary wildlife. This 2-hour guided walking tour will introduce you to native birds such as kakariki, tui, and bellbirds; rare species like takahē; and unique reptiles including green gecko and tuatara. Entrance fees are included.
  • 2-hour guided tour of Zealandia Wildlife Sanctuary in Wellington
  • Explore the vast wetlands of the Zealandia eco-sanctuary on a walking tour
  • Spot rare and endangered birds including takahē, tui, and kākā
  • Learn more about New Zealand’s native wildlife from an expert guide
  • Small-group tour limited to 10 people ensures a personalized experience
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.

You will see rare and exotic animals on this tour. Our group was small--another lady tourist, my wife and I and our ranger guide. We saw Tuataras and where they live. We saw the rare black and brown Saddleback bird 2,000 or fewer in existence. We saw beautiful parrots and other birds flying freely around the park. What we thought that we were going to miss was the nearly extinct Takahe less than 100 in existence. At the end of our tour, the guide said that he was going back to the Visitor Center, and the other lady tourist went with him. My wife and I opted to stay in the park a bit longer. While sitting on a bench, looking out toward the pond, what should appear? One of the resident Takahes of the park! Please take your time and be patient when you visit. The woods in the park were beautiful and make for a very pleasant easy to slightly moderate walk. There are plenty of benches for a rest for those of us who are a bit older. The restaurant is quite good, as are the interesting food selections there. This was a most pleasant day for us.
