Incredible variety of NZ's native birds in a pre-European i.e. mammal-free habitat!

Spend a very enjoyable couple of hours at Zealandia, mostly in Sanctuary Valley. Unfortunately due to time we were unable to spend time in the exhibition. Shuttle Bus is free which is wonderful but unfortunately we just missed one and had to wait an hour for the next. Just make sure you get a timetable when booking so you have lots of time to enjoy this beautiful site.

This was a beautiful park to walk around and view the birds as well as the forest. We took the cable car up the mountain, then the free shuttle to the park. Spent a couple hours here, could have spent many more exploring all the trails. Well worth the money.

Wonderful day out for the two of us, but would suit all ages. We would have liked more time to walk the longer trails too. We arrived via the free shuttle from Wellington's I-Centre and arrived in time to join a free guided walk with one of the volunteers. This should not be missed as there is so much information given about preparing the Zealandia site and the ethos behind it. The place was beautiful and it was a joy to see all those birds - some thought extinct and some just not seen in the area for decades. We booked Zealandia on-line and did it while in port on a cruise ship, and it really is easy to get to and from. At the end of the day we were dropped at the top of the funicular but chose to walk straight down via the streets, having been through the beautiful Botanic Gardens numerous times before. I would highly recommend Zealandia to any visitors.

This was good value. The museum had an excellent display of NZ flora and fauna and the walk around the park very interesting.The free shuttle there and back made it an excellent way of understanding NZ

A nice and interesting trip. I didn't allow enough time on this occasion. I will allow more time on the next occasion.

An adventure just getting to Zealand using the town cable car and provided Zealand pickup bus at the top of the cable car hill. Cool! This place has been set up to restore this area to what New Zealand looked like centuries ago before other creatures were brought into New Zealand. A guide is worth the extra money since most of the wild life are difficult to see without trained eyes. The area is fenced in to keep in desired animals and birds and keep out potential invaders, Area seemed almost prehistoric. Lots of walking plus heat and humidity in the summer. Rode an electric motor jungle boat to the far end of the enclosed valley. Very nice.

Great sights and wonderful to walk around and see everything could be signposted a bit better but that's it.
