About the Kiwi Birdlife Park

Rubbish tip turned refuge, the Kiwi Birdlife Park has been in operation since 1986. We are home to over 20 native species of wildlife all here on breed for release programs or in rehab due to injury.

Ever wonder what happens behind the scenes at the Park?

Check out our blog!

Each post will be written by a wildlife keeper to give you a first-hand account of what happens off-display. Every so often we will also be talking about animal husbandry and how we provide top quality care for all the park’s critters.

HOW YOU CAN HELP

We are primarily funded by visitors. All of our conservation work would not be possible without admission sales and souvenir sales.
