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.

Went there with my family and was surprised about the variety and good conditions of animals. My favourite were meerkats and Capuchin monkeys. My baby loved the pigs and friendly goats.
Buy the animal feed at the door and you wont regret it as animals are crazy about it.

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.
