Wellington also has Zealandia, one of the optional Wellington activities on our New Zealand Vacations website.
This is an impressive 2 square miles of protected natural forest where wildlife, especially native birds, can be found in their natural environment.
Rebekah's reaction? - "my favorite part of the day was standing on the old dam at dusk listening to the birds at Zealandia"
We've added a photo of one of the birds Rebekah might have seen and heard, the beautiful native Saddleback.
