A ZEALANDIA by Night tour provides a completely different and magical experience. Begin your tour with highlights of our fully immersive and interactive exhibition and find out the story of how this safe haven was created. Witness centuries of catastrophic loss on the big screen, as generations of new settlers, and the animals and plants they brought with them, changed the face of New Zealand forever. Then find out what New Zealanders are doing to put the pieces of our shattered paradise back together.

Then step through the predator-exclusion fence into the forest, where you will experience something incredible – evening birdsong that hasn’t been heard on the mainland for more than a century.

As darkness falls, your guide will start looking for our elusive national mascot – the kiwi. Over 100 call our valley home, so there’s a good chance of spotting one, foraging in the leaf litter! Often, the glow-worms are so bright you won’t even need your torch! Also look out for tuatara; our nocturnal duck, the pateke; our native forest parrot, the ka-ka-; and the morepork, our native owl. This is an utterly unforgettable experience: New Zealand at its very best.

Departure: 4.00pm from the city. Transport is included.
