Two separate buildings which have only a little lighting, to fool the kiwis into thinking it is night time! Great to see them active in reasonably large enclosures - though they had forgotten to unlock one of them and we had to ask! Wide range of birdlife, too, much of it in small cages. Good range of souvenirs with helpful staff.
Thank you for your visit and review! We're glad you enjoyed your time here - the kiwi are surprisingly active, and real characters to watch.
The best time to see most of our critters (but especially the kiwi) is at our keeper talks and feedings - 1030am, 130pm, and 330pm for the kiwi, 11am for the kea and kaka (bush and mountain parrots), 12pm for the kakariki (native parakeets) and 230pm for the longfin eels.
