Buy a ZEALANDIA day tour and receive FREE return tickets to ride the Cable Car this Labour Weekend – 24-26 October 2020.
Enjoy a day in Wellington like no other. Take an iconic Cable Car ride high above the city and follow the kākā to ZEALANDIA. Follow an expert guide as they explain and search for some of the over 40 species of rare wildlife in the lush forest of ZEALANDIA, including tuatara and takahē.
“Cannot Beat This Place. Wellington’s best kept eco secret and all Wellingtonians and those visiting should take time to visit. Not many, if any, capital cities boast a native wildlife sanctuary in their backyard…Check it out, take a picnic, enjoy the wildlife you will not be disappointed” TripAdvisor, September 2020.
Soak up the beautiful, lush forest while learning more about our unique ecological history and what the future could look like.
A free ZEALANDIA shuttle picks up from the top of the Cable Car on a timetable and takes you straight to ZEALANDIA. Just jump aboard in the city and in no time at all you will be surrounded by nature! Check out the timetable on our website.
Alternatively, walk 20-30 minutes through the suburb of Kelburn, where you will see houses built from the early 1900s and now has some of Wellington’s most exclusive properties. Walk through the lovely Kelburn Village and across the Kelburn Viaduct that was constructed in 1930-31 and is an important historic object.
Whether it’s a full day or half day, you are sure to enjoy this unique part of Wellington. Simply book your tour today, present your tour confirmation at the Cable Car ticket office and your journey begins.
After your tour, you are invited to stay in the Sanctuary for as long as you like. The last ZEALANDIA shuttle leaves ZEALANDIA at 5 pm. Bookings are essential, and space is limited on tours. Shuttles also have limited seats so please allow plenty of time to get to ZEALANDIA before your tour starts. There is an inside exhibition, café and store at ZEALANDIA so plenty to do once you are there.
