Park Projects

Since 1971, the Otorohanga Kiwi House & Native Bird Park has been actively contributing to national and international education and conservation projects.

We are currently moving into a transition and development phase to rejuvenate the park in order to provide new and exciting visitor experiences.

Part of this development is a proposed Kea & Kaka walk-through Aviary . The aviary will give visitors a "bird's eye view" of two completely different natural environments:

  • The alpine tundra inhabited by the Kea (the world's smartest parrot)
  • The forest canopy inhabited by the Kaka (New Zealand's forest parrot).

We also have a range of smaller projects that may require your help.
Watch this page for updates or send us an email for more information. We'd love to hear from you.


The Otorohanga Kiwi House & Native Bird Park is owned and operated by the Otorohanga Zoological Society, a non-profit organisation that relies totally on entry ticket sales, volunteer contributions and external funding.

If you are interested in donating to this project, we would love to hear from you.
