We have been conserving kiwi since 1971. Visit us and learn about our active kiwi breeding programme in the heart of the North Island. The Otorohanga Kiwi House & Native Bird Park is a ‘non-profit’ charity dedicated to the conservation of New Zealand's native wildlife through education, display and breeding programs. Your visit helps us carry out this great work.

The world-famous Waitomo Glowworm Caves, Black Water Rafting and caving adventures are a 15-minute drive south and it's just 2 minutes to Otorohanga's main street. We’re 2 hours south of Auckland, 1 hour from the Hobbiton Movie Set, 1.5 hours from Rotorua and Taupo.

Welcome to our Kiwi House, where you can share the magic of New Zealand's rare and special fauna and flora! It's ideal for a family outing and suitable for all ages.

  • “Awesome value for the money”

    Up close and personal, that's the best I can say. If you really want to see a Kiwi bird up and active, this is the place. They do regular feedings about every 2 hours. And it's incredibly entertaining to watch the female large spotted one defend her turf "against" the worker who goes in to feed her and stir things up a bit.

    The aviary outside is incredible too. You can get all sorts of up close camera shots of a huge variety of birds. The 3 of us in our party all agreed it was one of the top values for our money of all the attractions we had paid to see on the North Island. I can't imagine that you would regret it at all.
