For nzd40 per adult, there isn't really much to offer other than a few birds in cages, rainbow trouts in the pond and a measly 2 to 3 kiwi birds in a dark enclosure (hardly visible). The kids playground was about the only thing that...More

Yes, absolutely! They have picnic tables inside where you can eat - you're also able to get a ticket that allows you to go in and out for the day so you could always head out to get food then come back to eat it there
