THE NUMBER ONE ATTRACTION IN QUEENSTOWN

19 April  2021

Thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the Birdlife Park to see our native wildlife. The staff were amazing - very friendly and knowledgeable and made us feel very welcome. Highlights were the Kiwi feeding in the Kiwi houses where we watched Kiwis being fed and also the Conservation Show where we got to see up close the likes of the native Kereru (the largest pigeon in the world), Morepork (owl), ancient Tuatara and many other species. Loved it all and will definitely go back as this is the number one attraction in Queenstown IMO.

WE LOVE IT

Super friendly and helpful staff who are passionate about what they do. This is an amazing wildlife park. We got to see all the incredible species of New Zealand. Would highly recommend this place.

GREAT NATIVE BIRDS

12 April 2021

A great family vibe and enjoyable experience. The kiwi enclosure is the best I have been to, far better than the Auckland Zoo. Place is clean and well looked after. The bird show is cute and educational, something in it for the whole family. Appreciate all the effort to keep the place operational after the Covid-19 slowdown. Cheers
