This attraction is for those who are interested to see the wildlife of New Zealand. The park itself is very clean; the people here are really friendly and helpful. I felt the entrance fee was a little overpriced, but it’s not hard to see where the money goes to. The park is very clean, the facilities are very well-maintained, so no complains there!
The map provided was really useful, with helpful annotations explaining the different attractions at the different locations. I love the layout of the park. The park trail was flanked by different species of ferns and trees on both sides, some of which were interesting to look at, e.g. the fern alley, the redwoods and the kaurri trees. As you tour around the park, you can catch glimpses of ducks waddling around too. Along with the walk-in aviaries, it didn’t really feel like I was walking inside a wildlife park at all, but rather a natural rainforest instead. The entire setting was so peaceful and serene; makes Rainbow Springs a good destination for who are looking for a relaxing tourist getaway.
Rainbow Springs is quite family-friendly; there is a play area near the Big Splash for the kids to have fun, while the parents can relax at the nearby café.
The wildlife park is very convenient to get to, it’s just adjacent to Skyline Skyrides, so whilst here, do spend some time exploring both tourist attractions! They do not disappoint!!! Rainbow Springs is definitely an interesting place to visit for those who are nature-lovers.
