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 18 species of native wildlife back into the area, 6 of which were previously absent from mainland New Zealand for over 100 years.

Make the most of your visit to ZEALANDIA with a guided tour! Enjoy all the sights and sounds of ZEALANDIA with an experienced guide who will lead you through the sanctuary valley. Soak up the beautiful scenery while learning more about New Zealand’s unique ecological history.

ZEALANDIA is a short drive or cab ride from Wellington CBD at the end of Waiapu Road, Karori. Bus routes 3, 12, 17, 18, 21, 22 and 23 pass close to Waiapu Road.
