Zealandia: wildlife sanctuary
When we arrived here in Wellington in 2008, I have been looking for an opportunity to visit the Wellington Zoo and the Karori Wildlife Sanctuary. The latter held more attraction for me, because it is a fenced-off area where flora and fauna are encouraged to thrive in as natural a surrounding as possible.
Now renamed Zealandia, the sanctuary recently celebrated its anniversary and for two days, opened its doors to Wellington residents free of charge. That's quite a substantial saving, considering that an adult pass costs $28.50 and a kid's is $14.50. So off we went to Zealandia with some friends.
I would like the photos to speak for themselves the fun and beauty of Zealandia.
What's even more amazing is that Zealandia is only a few minutes' away from the city. For more information, visit the Zealandia website.
