Spend a day at Zealandia, a premier wildlife attraction located just minutes from central Wellington. At Zealandia: The Exhibition, you’ll take a trip through natural history with an interactive state-of-the-art showcase of the moa and Haast’s eagle that once roamed New Zealand. Your admission ticket also grants you access to the Sanctuary Valley, a predator-proof 550-acre (225-hectare) eco-sanctuary and safe haven for endemic animal species, including the country’s rarest birds, reptiles and insects.
  • Admission to both ZEALANDIA: The Exhibition and Sanctuary Valley in Wellington
  • See an amazing exhibition showcasing New Zealand’s natural history and world-renowned conservation movement
  • Be amazed by the lifelike models of prehistoric and extinct animals
  • The option to join free talks provided by ZEALANDIA'S rangers daily between 12 and 3pm
  • Explore New Zealand’s native birds, reptiles and insects in Sanctuary Valley
Use your admission ticket to Zealandia — an eco-restoration facility located just 10 minutes from downtown Wellington — and discover New Zealand’s natural history at your own pace. With your visitor guide and map in hand, you have all day to explore Zealandia: The Exhibition and the Sanctuary Valley. 

At the state-of-the-art exhibit, travel through 1,000 years of ecological change to a time before humans arrived in New Zealand. Come face-to-face with prehistoric giants of the bird world via lifelike models including a 10-foot-high (3-meter) flightless moa and its fearsome predator, the Haast’s eagle. 

On the big screens, observe the changing face of New Zealand as centuries of introduced people, animals and plants disrupted ecosystems, and learn about conservation efforts toward ecological restoration at insightful ranger talks offered daily. Then step outside into the Sanctuary Valley, which supports more than 30 species of native birds and reptiles, including tuatara, saddleback, hihi and takahe.
