A HIDDEN GEM

13 January  2021

I was quietly surprised to find this place at the bottom of the gondola. It’s fantastic. The explanations on conservation and the work that’s done there is much appreciated. The staff friendly and knowledgeable. The kiwis I could have watched for hours . Thank you

FANTASTIC LOCAL INITIATIVE

9 January 2021

Myself and Melissa my 8yr daughter spent 3 hours listening to the audio commentary, watching the two shows, coffee and scones and of course the honey tasting. Was a truly enjoyable time. We learnt a lot about the kiwi on site, definitely recommend for a bit of a slow down between the action filled time we spent in Queenstown.

GREAT QUIET PLACE

4 January 2021

It was great!! Quiet place in overcrowded Queenstown. Great to see native birds and reptiles of New Zealand and learn lot of interesting information. The employees of the park are enthusiastic in what they do and are getting good results in their conservational efforts.
