Zealandia was named one of TIME's Greatest Places for 2019. The accolade, which recognises the best destinations, restaurants and attractions to visit around the world, came in line with the urban eco-sanctuary celebrating the birth of its 1000th hihi chick. You'll now have the opportunity to try and spot that chick as well as kākā, kākāriki, takahē, tuatara and kererū as Zealandia reopens its doors for 2020.

As a reopening treat, the sanctuary is offering free general day admission until 19 July — the deal was originally scheduled to finish at the end of June. As free as a bird you'll be given the chance to explore the 500-acre site anytime between 9am–4pm. There's no need to book in advance; Zealandia will be registering all visitors through the biosecurity gate for contact tracing measures. Tickets are valid for two consecutive days. Last entry to the sanctuary is at 4pm.

For a guided experience, you can book Zealandia By Day tours.
