Owner description: Natureland is Nelson's zoo and wildlife conservation centre where you can get up close and personal to some unique New Zealand natives like Tuatara and Kea. Hang with the monkeys and get hands on with a range of interesting domestic animals. We are proud to be a community focused charitable trust so come on in and lets have a conservation conversation.

Very welcoming. Staff great with 3 year old. Special being able to feed some animals. Great to have play/picnic area. Great for child to have interaction with animals.

We used to bring our children here when they were young. This time we visited Nelson celebrating our wedding anniversary and made sure we came here again. It's a lovely place and the animals are well looked after. I have some amazing pictures and we notice some new animals and some missing. We are so glad it's still open and highly recommend checking it out when in Nelson.

I took my two grandchildren for a afternoon and they liked the animal very much. This is a great place to take children and they got to feed a few too. Need to go on a non rainy day as it is all outside.

Lets be honest here, Nelson is a small town and this Zoo is essentially making space of a roundabout.

The staff are super happy and more than happy to share their knowledge about the animals. Try ask for feed to give to the animals.

It's sad that the animals live in such a small area. Great for young children, has other fun nearby attractions as you'll zoom around this venue in little time.
