  • Really nice quiet place. Easy to walk around. The Kea were great fun to watch and play with. They're very gentle and will take the fruit from you hand.

Then we lucked out with a free bush walk guided tour with Robin - she was unbelievably fantastic!!! - a fountain of knowledge and was able to answer every question - just outstanding. Couldn't have had a better time! Thanks so much! - Lynn & Barb

  • More of a bush walk than a nature reserve but not a bad place... However it is rather pricey for what it is
