"Hard to explain how much I appreciated this tour. The 500-year vision of Zealandia is amazing and I truly hope that they will achieve it. Our guides were very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about what they do and what they believe! Great tour!" - ZEALANDIA By Night review by Karen, via Viator



When should I arrive? All tours visitors must arrive at the ZEALANDIA Visitor Centre 15 minutes before the tour start time. 
How much walking is involved? Expect to be on your feet for 2 hours. The tours venture through the Zealandia bush and tracks will include slopes, gravel and uneven terrain in places. It is not a strenuous walk but you will need reasonable fitness to join the public tour. If you have any doubt whether the tour is right for you, please get in touch at tours@visitzealandia.com.
What should I wear? You'll be venturing into the bush so dress to the conditions, with sturdy walking shoes, warm clothing and a waterproof layer just in case!
What if the weather is bad on the day of my tour? We go out in just about all conditions, so be prepared! Bring a waterproof jacket and wear sturdy walking shoes. In very extreme circumstances we may call off a tour for safety reasons. If this happens to your tour we will let visitors know as soon as possible and do our best to arrange a tour at a later date.
Can I book my own private tour?  Absolutely! Just email us and we can arrange for you.
What if I have any mobility or accessibility requirements? Please reach out if you have any health or mobility issues and would like to attend the tour. Some of the tracks used on public tours are not suitable for wheelchair users, mobility scooters or walkers. It may be possible to arrange a private tour instead. On private tours, we are pretty flexible in catering for any special requirement. Please contact tours@visitzealandia.com to see how we can accommodate you. We also have more general accessibility information here.

"The night tour offered by Zealandia is just magic. Its 10 minutes drive or a bus ride from the CBD and you are in another world. The tour began at twilight so we saw the day birds settling for the night. But as night fell we heard kiwi and morepork calls. We saw Tuatara - ancient reptiles which have been extinct on the mainland for over a hundred years. Glow worms shone through the foliage alongside the path and reflected off the water. A highlight was of course seeing a kiwi in the wild but just being in the forest in the peace and quiet of the night was truly magical." - ZEALANDIA By Night review by Julie, via Trip Advisor
