Kiwi Birdlife Park reviews
Came to see kiwis and was not disappointed! Saw 5 kiwis pretty clearly especially during feeding time. Got to see a tuatara up close and other native birds. Keas were sleepy. Loved seeing the... more »
Wonderful view of kiwi going about their business and up close encounters with Kea and Tuatara. Important conservation and rehabilitation work done here. A family business right next to Gondolas more »
Just by the lower gondola station there is what looks like a corrugated iron shed. Going through this entrance is a revelation. It opens out into several hectares of nature reserve with many aviaries.... more »
It was awesome! Must- see. Lots of happy-looking birds with really interesting information and a great cause. More than just a bird park; there's audio guides, honey tasting, a really quality souvenir shop including with possum fur and merino products, and an engaging bird show.
Not cheap to enter, but it's obviously not cheap to run either. We spent 3 hours there. We had a great time and hope we helped preserve native wildlife. Great staff. Great place.
Great concept. A small, sort of out of the way location. Was said that the original owner bought this, an old city garbage site and envisioned it becoming a refuge for the kiwi and other animals and birds. Nice information. A great bird show. Nice gift shop too. I think it’s a bit costly, however. Take your time and enjoy it all
ONE OF THE BEST ATTRACTIONS SO FAR! this place is like a mini zoo for endangered species in New Zealand. They collect some endangered species from all over the country, fed them and took care of them, then when they're ready they release them to the wild. They also educate the people that visited the place to practice conservation, and their animal show is super super fun! Definitely should come visit with your kids and family!
Lovely centre which surprised us with how good it was. The audio tour is well done and there a several kiwis to see as well as lots of other interesting birds and animals. The staff are knowledgeable and helpful.
