Zealandia: The Karori Sanctuary Experience
The Zealandia is an ambitious 250 hectare project intended to restore and protect native flora and fauna within the city environment. A ground-breaking fence to deter predators has been especially designed and constructed and a weka breeding program is well-established. Kiwis were recently released in the area, and visitors can also catch a glimpse of the famous tuataras that are native only to New Zealand. The secluded inner city valley will eventually incorporate educational facilities and a network of tracks.

No value for the money. I expected a lot to see, i only get to know what i should see if tehe conditions would be perfect. Meet other people with the same feeling. I have seen s lot more native bird around the country for free. Keep Your Eyes open and don�t pay money here.

the Chocolate Fish Cafe make this a perfect place for a day's outing.
