Stroll through NZ's largest dome aviary, native forest paths and wetland areas.
This is the best place to see a Kiwi with all-day viewing.

Your entry price includes:

11:00am Kea & Kaka (native parrots) feeding (daily)
1:30pm Kiwi bird feeding in the Nocturnal House (daily)




» KIWI BIRD FEEDING
We feed all our Kiwi birds, including "Atu" (New Zealand's most charismatic bird) every day at 1:30pm in the Nocturnal House

It's a unique opportunity where you'll:

  • See our Guide feed the birds with a delicious combination of minced meat, insects, porridge, tofu, sultanas, banana and berries! It's a lovely diet that provides them with everything they need.
    (They do spend a lot of time foraging in the Nocturnal House as well, because there are a lot of natural foods in the natural earth floor for them to hunt)
  • Hear about the individual birds and their food preferences
  • Meet the people who care for the birds.

» KEA & KAKA BIRD FEEDING
Our native parrots – the Kea & Kaka – are fed daily at 11:00am
