  • One of our favourite places. Visit regularly. Today enjoyed a quiz and feeding the eels and seeing all the birds.
  • Nicely maintained natural environment. Friendly knowledgeable staff. Loved Dexter the pukeko.
  • Worth going for a look. Nice walk, saw the kiwi, fed the eels, would recommend for a kids group
  • Good place to take the kids. Check the eel feeding times before you go. Expect to be able to spend a few hours looking around.
  • A hidden gem! Relaxed & quiet surrounds. Great interaction with the wildlife. Super friendly & helpful staff.
