AMAZING WAY TO SPEND A MORNING

What a wonderful place - conservation is in the fibre of their being. All the staff were lovely. The audio was great and really informative. The little shows were great. The kiwis in the dark are worth the wait. Just wait for eyes to adjust and for them to wander into sight! We were there 3 hours.

Great place to visit.

We had a great time at the Kiwi Birdlife park. Staff were very accomodating and informative. It was a bit cold, but walking around the park warmed us up nicely. It is a very interesting place to visit. It is the first time I have seen a Kiwi running around in an enclosure, they were a very good size. It is good to see that the park breeds the kiwi then they are sent to different places in NZ to hopefully keep the bred increasing. The presentation with the live animals was very interesting. Overall a very good day was had by my wife and I. I would recommend a visit.
