Start your adventure as darkness falls, following your guide deep into the ZEALANDIA sanctuary valley to search for some of New Zealand’s rarest wildlife, including little spotted kiwi, glow-worms, tuatara, giant weta, and more.
After your guide shows you the highlights of our interactive exhibition, you will walk through the gates of our predator exclusion fence and hear the evening birdsong that has been absent on mainland New Zealand for more than a century. Explore the valley by torchlight as your guide leads you in search of some of the more distinctive sights and sounds of New Zealand’s native forest.
ZEALANDIA is just 10 minutes from Wellington’s CBD, yet a world apart. The tours run for approximately two and a half hours, with a minimum age of 12 years.
