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.

Our Latest Project 

Our latest (and greatest) development is our new state of the art kiwi exhibit. Coupled with our existing exhibits, we currently have the largest kiwi display space in the country. We visited every kiwi house in the country before this development and are really proud of this space.

Experience kiwi exhibiting natural behaviours in an immersive forest setting where you can smell, hear and see the kiwi, and hear about the work that we are doing to conserve them. All of our kiwi get released into the wild and this work is funded by our visitors and donations. 


We are 100% funded by visitors. All of our conservation work would not be possible without admission sales and souvenir sales.
