Friendly & helpful staff & great facilities. Bird show was really entertaining & loved the flume ride. Spent most of the day there. A lot different from when we were kids! Great family day out :)

AMAZING EXPERIENCE!!

It’s been over twenty years since I’ve been to Rainbow Springs, so many fabulous memories. I’ve returned with my husband and we were not disappointed. What a day. It’s a five out of five from us.

Rainbow Springs

Well worth the $10 we paid - a very pleasant way to spend an hour or so, especially as we went early, so avoided the crowds. However, would have felt cheated if we'd paid the full $40 entrance fee.

Fun!

Rainbow springs was great, but sadly the rain killed it for us. My 8 year old son loved the Big Splash, as did we! We really enjoyed seeing the birds, but especially the kiwi! That was our first time! If the weather was better I'm sure it would have been more enjoyable as we missed the bird show due to bad weather! Thanks Rainbow Springs!
