Great place to spend a day or more. The kids had a ball feeding the animals and fishing in the near by rivers. The family units had tons of space and were very well stocked. Good food options in town and close to Buller gorge jet boat tours- a must do! We would definitely go back!

We stopped here for one night to rest on our way up to Auckland and it was surprisingly quaint and comfortable. But the best part was the couple who own it, I want to say Lynn and her husband?, totally made our night with their friendliness and open minded sense of humor. We rolled in at 9pm in severe need...

Friendly park, nice camp kitchen, stayed in a motorhome for two nights. Internet $5/24 hours. Showers 50c/5 minutes. BBQ free. Nice looking trampoline. Lots of animals for the kids. Playground a wee bit tired.

Friendly helpful staff, great internet, good well stocked shared facilities and newly renovated cabin - very reasonably priced. We went at an off-peak time, so it was nice and quiet, and we got the animals all to ourselves! Had never hung out with a wallaby and deer before!

We are a group that meets once a year somewhere in the middle if the SI this year being Murchison. We chose the Kiwi Motel as it had a lot of space and thought it would be much like all motels Unfortunately this was not the case the common theme was we were cold as there were no blankets only...

Stayed here with my 3 kids whilst traveling NZ. Kids loved the change in scenery and it was great to see some Aussie icons (Emu etc). All facilities were clean and in order and the kitchen was a great change to eating in the vans.

I stayed here with my family in March and it was wonderful. My sister and I pet the wallaby and fed the ducks and the sheep, it was great! Best of all, I left a few bracelets that had sentimental value to me and the staff kindly returned them via mail. The showers and kitchen were very clean as well.... More

Enjoyed two nights in one of the motel units. The staff were very helpful and welcoming and the unit was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed. The glasses sparkled and plenty of pans, plates etc. Beautiful location and interesting selection of animals including a very sweet friendly young deer. Lovely and warm and comfortable beds - but we'll book... More

I really enjoyed the campsite here, it was very roomy and beautiful with many different types of animals such as emu, wallaby, deer, pig, and lots of ducks. There was also a trampoline for children and it was a quiet and dark place (I enjoy the dark as an amateur astronomer). Pay showers that were not very clean (lots of... More

A great location, very friendly and welcoming staff made our stay very enjoyable. A visit to see the farm animals around the park. Then just a few minutes walk down the road to town explore and get some rations. Camp kitchen was well equiped and clean as were the showers and toilets. Loved the encouragement to recycle and any leftovers... More
