    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.

    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.

    Interesting, but spendy

    Even with a discount, we thought this was a little expensive. We saw one kiwi bird & it was, of course, in the dark. One highlight was that we were there when it was being fed & it was entertaining how it followed the feeder around & kept trying to get in her boots. The other birds were somewhat interesting. The bird sanctuary area (where you go into the habitat) was fun as birds flew around you. Fairly quick visit since there wasn't a ton to see.
