The Parrot Place, Kerikeri

4.6
#2 of 7 in Parks in Kerikeri
Wildlife Area Nature / Park
Get up close and personal with approximately 300 colorful birds at The Parrot Place, a zoo and breeding center. Stroll through the lush subtropical gardens as brightly plumed parrots frolic around you, or enter the large walk-in aviaries where the friendly birds will happily perch on an arm or a head. The center's knowledgeable hosts will tell you all about their many varieties and species from around the world, including the native New Zealand kākāriki. A large play area keeps children entertained while you relax in the picnic area, perhaps with an ice cream from the onsite shop.

  • A bird's paradise. Well maintained and neat. Friendly staff and friendly birds. Highly recommend making the effort to visit here.
  • Awesome Awesome Awesome experience!! Would do over and over again!! 😊 Staff was soooo friendly and helpful and the birds were beautiful!! If you're in the area I highly recommend!!
  • This was an amazing experience for my daughter. The guy in charge was so patient with her as it took some time to build up the courage to let one of the bird's sit on her arm. I have been to KeriKeri many times before, so this was the first time I had actually been in the Parrot Place myself. Thoroughly recommended and a memory my daughter will never forget.
  • When you arrive it feels like you're just going to look at someone's back garden collection of aviaries, and it is like that to a degree, but it's a pretty good collection of very handsome bird, and once you're inside the large cages and birds are landing on your arms and shoulders and eating nuts and seeds from you (available when you arrive) it suddenly changes from sort of an odd place to a really fun place. Great if you have kids or like birds. Also has a nice little playground inside where parents can sit while the kids play.
  • Best place to interact with parrot..friendly staff helps you a lot with interaction with birds..you should visit this place
