Description

ZEALANDIA By Night is an extraordinary experience where you get to witness some of New Zealand’s rarest animals in their natural habitat. Stepping through the fence is like stepping back in time and walking through native New Zealand forest guided by torchlight is an experience like no other. Tucked away in the rolling hills yet just 10 minutes from the CBD, ZEALANDIA is the hidden gem of Wellington.

Your tour starts within the interactive exhibition, which showcases New Zealand’s fascinating natural history and ZEALANDIA's conservation efforts to preserve our unique forest ecosystem. After a short film, your expert guide lead through the gates of the predator-proof fence which provides a safe haven for hundreds of native NZ species. You will walk along the lake as the sun sets and the daytime species settle in and the nocturnal animals wake. Guided by torchlight and following the birdsong that echos throughout the sanctuary, you will begin your search for kaka, weta, glow worms, tuatara and the rare Little Spotted Kiwi, all living wild.
