    Absolutely Wonderful!

    I was not expecting I would hang around for 5 hours in the centre! But there were so many interesting things to see and an easy hike to do. It was a wonderful day! So happy to see the white kiwi!

    Hidden Gem of the Wairarapa

    A great morning out with the whānau: enjoying the cool shade of the trees, the call of nga manu and discovering the wonders of our backyard.

    Great visit!

    Wonderful place to explore! Birds are very social and fun to watch! The white Kiwi is very cute! Walking trail to the lookout a bonus! And very informative with rangers giving great talks! We really enjoyed the eel feeding too! Spent over 4 hours for $10.00 per person with book.me which is awesome value!

    Really interesting place.

    It is many years since our last visit, so pleased we have been back. This is amazing, such variety with the inside and outside features. The tracks around the hour long walk are excellent, the guide map we were given is very clear and to see and HEAR the birds is lovely. Thanks to all who have made these improvements, we will be back in the future too.
