Zealandia Te Māra a Tāne
53 Waiapu Road, Karori, Wellington
The world’s first fully fenced ecosanctuary, Zealandia Te Māra a Tāne, is an incredible slice of the wilderness a few minutes’ drive from Wellington’s CBD. Named by Time magazine as one of the 100 greatest places in the world, Zealandia’s 225 hectares of regenerating forest and birdlife is a must-visit. The urban sanctuary is responsible for the reintroduction of 18 native species into the region, some of which were previously absent from mainland New Zealand for over 100 years.
