  • Website


Set around a picturesque reservoir, Zealandia is home to some of New Zealand’s most rare and extraordinary wildlife. All are thriving wild in a world-first protected sanctuary just minutes from Wellington’s CBD.

From catering for small business conferences to fully-catered weddings, functions at Zealandia provide that unique touch. They also support native conservation efforts.

The 225-hectare eco-sanctuary is a ground-breaking conservation project that has reintroduced 18 species of native wildlife back into the area. Some of which were previously absent from mainland New Zealand for more than 100 years.

There are opportunities for outdoor activities, team building, and exploring in such a beautiful scenic environment. There is plenty of free parking for cars and buses and a café on-site for all your catering needs.

Functions are sustainable and environmentally-conscious with all proceeds going to conservation. Zealandia is carboNZero and conscious consumers certified.
