We had a great time at Wingspan, Ozzy the Falcon was awesome! The kids raved about it, and loved the feathers they were given.

I took a group of older people to Wingspan. They loved it. It is fantastic to see these large birds up close and to watch them fly. All ages were thrilled by this show. We finished with ice cream for all from the cafe.

Lovely little place with its own museum, aviary, bird flight demo, visitor Center and all other facilities. They clearly love birds and it's infectious. Wish them all success and hope their tribe grows

They do a fantastic job here rehabilitating injured NZ falcons & rearing some in captivity. It was interesting to see the birds in flight and the work of the centre.

I was recommended these guys after chatting with the guides on my canopy tour. They did not let me down. Seeing these birds of prey in full flight and holding them is awe-inspiring. The rehab and education work they do at wingspan is awesome!

We went for the falcon show and whilst it was interesting to start with, it went on for too long and we lost interest.

Yes they are. Their promotional material says open 9am-3pm all weathers. Flying display at 2pm. I highly recommend it.
