    Crazy Kiwi bird is funny!

    We had a fun time watching the kiwi bird running around in the display room and attacking the kiwi keeper while feeding. Many native birds in the park. Staffs are kind and helpful. However the park is rather small.

    Still need luck

    Knowing that most of the birds have been rescued from death before it´s nice to watch them in the park. There is no guaranty to see a kiwi. We´ve just seen one on them before feeding time. The people arriving five minutes later just for feeding time weren´t that lucky.

    Lovely facility

    We were really impressed with this place from the moment we walked in. Super friendly staff at reception, who seemed genuinely interested, and were very helpful. We timed it right to see the Kiwi feeding at 3:30pm, which was really interesting, even for native Kiwis like us. Lots of other interesting creatures and birds to see around the park. We really enjoyed our time here.

    Awesome to see the Kiwis up close

    We were able to see the Kiwis up close and they're night enclosure as they fed them. A really awesome thing to experience . The bird sanctuary is clean and blush with beautiful vegetation to house these incredible animals.
