The Zealandia Visitor Centre has an elevator suitable for wheelchair users. This allows access to the front desk, exhibition, and Rāta cafe. There are a number of wheelchair accessible tracks throughout the valley. They are signposted in the valley, but any of our friendly staff at the front desk should be able to point out our recommended route on a map and you can view the tracks on our wheelchair accessibility map.
We recommend that wheelchair users bring a companion – they are able to enter free of charge. There are wheelchair accessible toilets in the Visitor Centre and more in the sanctuary, about 20 minutes from the entrance. Disabled car parking is available.
Three mobility scooters (kindly donated by a local family and TSB Bank / Wellington City Council) are available for use free of charge.
If you’d like to book a scooter in advance, please email us at Visitors.Centre@visitzealandia.com and include the day and timeframe you’d like to reserve it.
Getting here: Our shuttle has room to bring a wheelchair, however we do not currently have a chairlift. If you are unable to move comfortably from your chair into the shuttle, we recommend calling Combined Taxis. They have a fleet of mobility vans available. Please let them know if you require a wheelchair hoist. Combined Taxis: +64 (0)4 384 4444 or taxis.co.nz.
