Find something for all the family at Queens Park, recognized in New Zealand as one of the nation's most important parks. The 810,000 sq m (8,700,000 sq ft) of this city park offer plenty of space for numerous sporting activities, including an 18-hole golf course, an aviary housing a diverse array of the country's birdlife, and a wealth of botanical gardens. Once a grazing place for cattle, the park now includes an animal reserve where rabbits, fowl, wallabies, and ostriches thrive in their enclosures. A museum and art gallery provide entertainment and education for those interested in local history as well as the wildlife and past of the islands lying off the country's coast.

  • A great place to have a picnic. well maintained kids play area is highly commendable.
  • We only had time for a short break in the morning and visited the animal park here, we were really lucky to see many animals being fed. It was around 9:30am on a weekday and would definitely recommend the experience.
  • Stunning! Just so beautiful, I wish we'd had more time to spend here. Loved the animals & tulips were spectacular. Definitely worth a look if you're in the area.

I watched it pace slowly up n down it cage...it has an air of hopelessness.. .it's feathers were dull..and half falling out...please send it to a farm it needs freedom.. the gardens are beautiful the bird enclosures great....but the ostrich...was so sad...FREE THE OSTRICH..let it live a propper life
