Lovely family run conservation, warm and inviting staff. Loved up close experiences especially with kea and kiwi birds. Great conservation show as well.

GREAT PLACE TO VISIT

15 May 2021

We had a great time at the Kiwi Birdlife park. Staff were very accommodating 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.

GREAT EXPERIENCE!

Informational and fun. The kiwis are super cute, you can see them in action from very close.! The conservation work the park does is admirable.
