The ultimate nighttime adventure!
Explore the sanctuary by torchlight as your guide leads you in search of some of the more distinctive sights and sounds of New Zealand’s native forest.
Experience many of the rare and endangered species and see those which only come out at night. See unique species such as wētā, glow worms, and tuatara. Your group may see some of the 130 little spotted kiwi who call Zealandia home - sightings of kiwi are common on these tours (circa 80%), but are not guaranteed.
Gain insights into New Zealand’s natural history and the significance of the unique species within Māori culture.
The tour will end with a replenishing cup of hot kawakawa tea in the Visitors Centre.
From 3 December 2021, visitors to Zealandia Te Mārā a Tāne will be required to show their Vaccination Pass prior to entry.
