ZEALANDIA is a heaven of tropical bliss right on the doorstep of Wellington City. Affectionately referred to as a hidden gem ZEALANDIA received international acclaim for the groundbreaking predator free 8.6km fence. We offer daily educational tours which can be tailored to suit your learning objectives. We run morning and afternoon tours. Times are flexible to suit your agenda.
Our programmes support the Learning Experience outside the Classroom (LEOTC) curriculum and offer students of all ages a unique opportunity to experience cutting-edge conservation in action.
During your tour of the Sanctuary Valley you will have a chance to experience some of New Zealand’s most endangered native animals. During your tour you can expect to see tuatara, kaka hihi, saddleback and a host of other wildlife living freely in our 225 hectare safe haven. Find out what other native wildlife you might encounter on your visit to Zealandia.
Our two story exhibition space brings New Zealand’s natural history and conservation story alive with state-of-the-art multimedia exhibits.
As a contracted supplier for LEOTC we can offer you a range of fascinating primary curriculum-linked programmes and NCEA achievement standards-linked secondary programmes. Alternatively you can speak to our educational team and tailor your tour to suit your learning goals.
Tours generally last two hours and operate in all weather conditions so appropriate clothing is required. Booking is essential. Visit our website for more information on our educational tours.
