Many people will just pass Whangarei on their trip but this stop is really worth it. Only 10 min from the main road you actually get two for the price of one.
There is a nice exhibition outside with secveral houses on display as a sort of open air musuem plus a small museum with very interesting exhibit. Nestled into this is a small bird sanctuary where birds are kept before release into the wilderness.
This is all very good to spend some informative (rules for teachers) hour or so if you come in a bit too early for the feeding time for the birds. Two birds here and of course the areal is darkened so thenocturlnal birds come out. Very interesting exhibits and a lot of fun during feeding time.
The staff is extremely friendly and hospitable.
