The Whenua iti 'GO WILD' kids had a fantastic day exploring the Sanctuary.
They enjoyed finding out about our unique NZ wildlife and the pests that threaten them and enjoying a good long tramp into the heart of the Sanctuary.

Holiday Opening Hours
The Sanctuary is currently open to the public at all hours. The only pedestrian entrance through the sanctuary’s pest-proof fence is the public gate located directly behind the visitor centre building. Because the site is not yet pest-free the public gate remains unlocked. (Please note the pedestrian bridge and track from the car park are currently closed for repairs.)
A donation for entry is requested by the charitable trust developing the sanctuary to support the project as a work in progress.
Suggested donation is $5 per adult or $10-$15 per family.
Over the coming year we will use these funds to develop additional visitor facilities.
The visitor centre is staffed by volunteer hosts, and is open from 11:00am to 3:00pm on weekdays and from 10:30am to 4:30pm on weekends.
Please make sure your vehicle is not in the carpark after 5pm
Dogs are Prohibited.
Please observe all warning signage.
