Owner description: See Kiwi in a natural environment - there is no glass! Get close to Kea, Tuatara and other native icons. Willowbank Wildlife Reserve is also home to introduced and exotic breeds. Make your own way around the park and animals will eat right out of your hand. Willowbank is open from 9.30Am daily - kiwis are able to be viewed from 10.30Am until close.

Great for close encounters for the kiddies, bags of food and plenty of walking around to tucker them out. Price was a little off-putting ($60 for our family) but there is the option of a years pass for $100 which works out better.

I was so impressed with this place. It was so well cared for, everyone was very friendly. We went quite early in the day and so were lucky enough to get the Kiwi house to ourselves. Spent ages watching the kiwis there. Highly recommend this place - they obviously care very much about what they are doing.

Worth a few hours to see all the native flora and fauna of New Zealand. Kiwi's are a nightmare to see as they're nocturnal.

Make sure you get a voucher for your visit and save some money!

I like this place as it is more for younger children and there are lots of animals for them to see also like how you can walk around

Natural settings to get close to native NZ wildlife and other exotic birds and animals. Kiwi viewing in the nocturnal house.
