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

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

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.
