Fantastic experience in the heart of Queenstown

Wonderful park and experience which has NZs natives all on display. The show is a big highlight and a must see. Ticket pricing is fair and the experience is great for people of all ages. We had a terrific time

Amazing :D

The park was so lovely and I think that having the headsets they tell you about each station is a really great idea! I loved the show they did with the tuatara and the pigeon! That was really cool and factual. There is so much to see and do, and well worth booking in! They are not government funded so all of the entry tickets and in store purchases really mean a lot to them :) 10/10 would go again!

Had a great time at the park

Really enjoyed the day at the park. The Kiwi encounter and the bird show was the highlight of the day. We also really enjoyed walking around the park and listening to the stories from the portable headphones provided.
