Willowbank Wildlife Reserve

Close encounters of the 'wildlife kind' are a Willowbank trademark.

Willowbank is the only place where you can meet New Zealand's Big 5 wildlife with the cheeky Kea, the ancient Tuatara, our bush parrot the Kaka, the very rare Takahe and of course the Kiwi. Kiwi viewing is guaranteed with no glass to hinder your view!

Feed the eels and make friends with the livestock breeds unique to New Zealand. Listen to the Kiwi as it forages by your feet. Embark on a journey through the history of New Zealand. See the impact of introduced species in 'Wild NZ'. Meet old livestock breeds in 'Heritage NZ'. Experience native wildlife in 'Natural NZ', and share our hope for their future. Relax and enjoy your experience in conservation.

Willowbank is a place close to both Christchurch city and the International Airport, where culture and conservation combine.
