Night Hike: Zoo and Southern Walkway






















What we'll be doing
Meeting at the Wellington zoo in Newtown, we'll be walking along the tracks that follow the fenceline up around the zoo to the lower slopes of Mt Albert Park. From there, we’ll join the southern walkway and head over to Houghton Bay and the southern coastline and then back up to the Hockey stadium and Mt Albert park.

The zoo animals will be alive and raucous at this time of night and the views out across the south coast will be stunning.

5/10 – walking for up to 2 hours with some short moderate climbs and some less formed tracks so a reasonable level of fitness is required. Parts of the track can be slippery when very wet, so good footwear is essential.

What to bring
A TORCH IS ESSENTIAL. Also footwear with good grip, waterproof outer layer, something to drink and snacks.

Meet at 5:00pm. Approx 2hrs including short breaks.


If you no show or cancel after 7pm the night before this event you will have a 'no show' recorded against your name. No shows can lead to you having to leave the group. Please read our Group Rules.

    Absolutely positively fantastic Wellington evening with a full moon, clear skies and an enthusiastic group from AW. So much fun and really enjoyed showing the group Wellington's jewels in the south of the city. Well done Julia on doing the zoo southern double, very impressed :-)

    If you're on the waitlist, just come along anyway as there's plenty of space!

    Would love to come, but have a full weekend already, so might be best to take it easy on Sunday evening! Hope you all have fun

    As the zoo has a $2 gold coin entry day we can meetup say 2 hours earlier, 3p\m, and have a look on the 'inside' before we go for our safari walk. Let me know if you are keen.

      Shirley, 5pm is the start time for this event so no expectation to be there earlier for the prior event too.
