Zealandia. An inner city sanctuary in Wellington, New Zealand

Zealandia, formerly known as the Karori Wildlife Sanctuary is the ideal place to see New Zealand’s birds only 3k from our Parliament in the capital – Wellington. I have just bought an annual card so you can expect more blogs on this topic!

A mainland, predator-free valley it has fast become a safe place for birds and from this area, the rest of Wellington is seeing more and more of birds in our backyards.  (www.facebook.com/zealandia)

  1. Wow beautiful pictures. I always love visiting this place. Visiting such sanctuaries rejuvenates the mind and body. You are offered with this soothing environment and there is so much peace. Karori wildlife sanctuary looks like an amazing place. I also loved your slide show and thank you for sharing these pictures with us.


  2. Thank you Heather

    Great place. Super that there’s binoculars to view shags from across the water. My darling granddaughter was impressed by that and also by Tuatara.
