Punanga Manu o Te Anau, Te Anau

#8 of 11 in Wildlife in Te Anau
See rare and endangered bird species native to New Zealand at Punanga Manu o Te Anau. Unlike a zoo, the wildlife park takes the form of aviaries and enclosures scattered along parklands on the edge of the lake. They nurse injured and special needs birds as well. Get there by car or opt to take the more scenic route, a hike along the lakefront from the nearby town. You can also take advantage of the popular hiking trails of Milford Sound and Doubtful Sound, which are in the vicinity. Entry to the park is free and offers rare opportunities to see birds such as the native pigeon, blue flamingo, tui, kea, kakariki, kaka, takahe, and weka.
