Connect with nature at Staglands wildlife
Our Wellington wildlife park is the perfect destination for a family excursion or school group outing with fun for all ages! Staglands Wildlife Reserve takes a holistic approach to nature and includes impressive walk-through aviaries and walkways which instil a sense of freedom for both the visitor and the animal. Staglands is unlike any zoo you’ve visited before!
There are plenty of opportunities to get up close and personal with animals and birds. Most of the animals are super friendly and if you are quiet and patient they will come to you!
If you want to find out more about some of the animals at Staglands from one of our knowledgeable rangers and have a go at feeding them, join a lunch time feed tour.
Tours run daily. Meet at the cafe at 12.45pm. Ask at the ticket office for more information.
We hope that your experience at our reserve will help to increase your awareness of the need to protect our unique natural heritage and encourage you and your family to get involved with conservation efforts in order to make a difference!
Animal food is available from the ticketing office.
Our specially made nectar for the birds
We also feed a specially made nectar to the wild birds around the park. During spring months we go through over 21 litres a day, which we've calculated feeds up to 2000 wax eyes in addition to numerous bellbirds and tui's. Click here to download a copy of our special nectar recipe.
