We loved Ambury Regional Park! We had some time to pass between flying into AKL and checking into our hotel, so we decided to visit the park. It was absolutely beautiful! Gentle walking trails through the grasslands and around the pastures lead to beautiful views of the water. The animals are gentle and beautiful - we were able to see... More

If you enjoy walking start at the kiwi esplanade which is at Mangere bridge. Walk along the waterfront and enjoy the beautiful views. You will come across thousands of oyster catchers you hang out in a paddock by the walkway. When you get to the end you can walk through Ambury Park. This is a great place to visit with... More

I've been several times and never seen anything from the main bird hide near the car park/camp ground. The best spots for viewing the waders are between Ambury park and the Mangere lagoon/Puketutu Island (you can... More

Kids love the farm day. Pat the animals and tractor rides . Parking can be difficult as it gets busy so be early. When there is not a farm day the walk around is lovely, and stunning views.

This is such a great little outing to take the kids on. It's a huge park, so you can for a nice long walk if you feel like exploring. There's loads of animals and most of them will come nice and close and don't mind too much if you try to pet them. If you're there at about 10 you... More
