Zealandia Free Entry
Explore the 500-acre eco-sanctuary as free as a bird.
May 13, 2020
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.
Just like Wellington Zoo, the sanctuary is offering free entry until the end of June. As free as a bird you'll be given the chance to explore the 500-acre site from 16 May to 30 June, 2020. Zealandia will be registering all visitors through the biosecurity gate for contact tracing measures, and physical distancing will also be required as per the Ministry of Health's guidelines.
