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.

Great way to see NZ's birdlife

The park is most popular for the kiwis, that we got to see right up close next to the window, but there are a bunch of other attractions. The highlight for me was hanging out / getting attacked by the kea. Getting to see the karearea falcon and tuatara was great too. Good value with the bookme discount and money goes towards funding the park and conservation. Also good to see many native birds naturally inhabiting the surrounds of the exhibits with native forest (such as bellbirds and fantails).

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.

Nice activity in Queenstown

The park is a peaceful place in Queenstown, just next to the Gondola, to discover new Zealand's Wildlife. Don't miss the show and Kiwi feeding. Really nice staff :)

Wonderful! Life long dream to see Kiwis!

I was so excited to come here because I’ve wanted to see kiwis forever and I was no disappointed. What wonderful little creatures! Not only that all the other animals in the park were also amazing. Even the Kea who bullied me and stole my paper bag. Everyone who works here obviously loves their job and the family who maintains the park is passionate in their goal of conservation. Would love to go back soon!
