DISCOVER THE WILD SIDE OF WELLINGTON
ZEALANDIA is the world’s first fully-fenced urban ecosanctuary, with an extraordinary 500-year vision to restore a Wellington valley’s forest and freshwater ecosystems as closely as possible to their pre-human state. The 225 hectare ecosanctuary is a groundbreaking conservation project that has reintroduced over 20 species of native wildlife back into the area, some of which were previously absent from mainland New Zealand for over 100 years.
Until 19 July 2020, General Admission is free to Zealandia. There's no need to book in advance, so feel free to visit anytime between 9:00-4:00pm.
