Getting there:
Please consider using public transport as we expect both venues to be very busy and car parking to be limited. For your best public transport option see

We are expecting more visitors than a normal weekend so please think about using the public transport. Parking at Zealandia will be limited and parking along Birdwood Road, Moana Road, Chaytor Street, Curtis Street and in Northland is recommended. The ZEALANDIA free shuttle will be operating from the Cable Car.

Wellington Zoo
We are expecting more visitors than a normal weekend so please think about using public transport to the Zoo. There’ll be extra buses to the Zoo from the Wellington Railway Station to help you get here faster. We have limited car parks so buses are the best option, and they drop you off right at the door to the Zoo.

Visit Metlink for bus routes and timetables.

Scooters, rollerblades and skateboards are not permitted in the Zoo or Zealandia; please leave them at home as we do not have the space to store these during your visit.
