Come enjoy the sights, sounds and textures of the New Zealand bush and wildlife in our 5-acre sanctuary.

New Zealand is home to an amazing array of unique wildlife, the Park allows you to see these animals and learn all about them right in the heart of Queenstown.

We have over 20 species of native wildlife on display, including New Zealand's national icon, the kiwi and our living fossil, the tuatara.

Most of the animals held at the park are part of nationally managed breeding programmes for conservation.

Park entry includes a Self-Guided Audio Tour (allow 45min), Kiwi Feeding and Conservation Show.

The Conservation Show invites you to get up close and personal with free-flying birds while our team of keepers entertain you with their wealth of knowledge and experience.

The Kiwi Feeding allows you to have an unforgettable experience viewing the kiwi and learning about these fascinating birds from our qualified zoologists.

Don't miss the chance to visit our Café and Conservation Shop. Your entry, purchases and donations support our continuing conservation work.

A hidden gem

Have walked past this place many times, but was recommended by a local and was pleasantly surprised. Well informed walk and presentations by the friendly staff. Great being up close with animal's and of course the kiwis. Great cafe also.

Great experience

The park is a great effort to bring back sustainability in native flora & fauna. We especially enjoyed seeing the Kiwi and were surprised how big they are. Our only disappointment was the narrator of the Kiwi exhibit being almost unintelligible, due to accent and ESL.

Amazing little gem in a tourist commercial town

A lovely 2 hours spent with NZsbird life. a little up close show with birds and reptiles and seeing kiwis in a nocturnal habitat is the iceing on the cake. Bees in the glass hive and explanation with tastings a very enjoyable 2 hours spent at the park. Note these photos are from photos on the wall not of the feeding which you will have to keep in your own minds memory.
