Location and Contact


• Wildlife House is located in downtown Wellington and is easily accessible to all Wellington has to offer.
• From Ferry: If you arrive by the inter-island ferry we provide a complimentary pick up service in our easy to spot stripy zebra van. Informing us of your time of arrival when pre-booking is a good idea. If you miss the zebra bus there is a free shuttle from the ferry to the railway station.
• From Railway station: Catch a bus from outside the railway station to Courtenay Place for just $1 or $2. Most of the buses go along Courtenay Place so just check with the bus driver. On the corner of Tory Street you will see the Sports Cafe and Burger King, this is where you need to get off the bus. Alternatively, the zebra van does some pick ups from the railway station so just give us a call to let us know when you are arriving.
• From Airport: There are three options from the airport, these being bus, taxi or shuttle. The bus leaves regularly from outside arrivals and drops you off in Courtenay Place for $4. A shuttle will cost approximately $10-$15 and a taxi about $20.
