Karori Sanctuary and Zealandia

Visiting Wellington during September ( to see WOW) I was able to visit the karori sanctuary and the wonderful new Zealandia centre.

The native bird life in the sanctuary is easy to see and the Zealandia centre is excellent for its educational content, helpful staff and great food and coffee. There was even a free pick -up service from the cable car with a chatty and informative driver.

It was great to see tuatara, bellbirds, kakariki, North Island robin and many other species all on just a couple of visits, however the real surprise for me was sighting kaka flying wild from the reserve above the botanic gardens near the cable car.

Highly Recommended
