    What to Expect
    Find your way to Rotorua’s Rainbow Springs, a nature park that includes a daily bird show, Big Splash water ride, Kiwi Encounter and more. 
    Use your entrance ticket to this family-friendly attraction to learn about New Zealand’s largest kiwi conservation center, where more than 1,000 kiwis have been successfully hatched and returned to the wild. Get up close to rare and endangered kiwis and see the life stages of this national bird.
    Listen to myriad birdcalls on a walk through the free-flight aviaries, meet a hand-reared kea bird and see cockatoos and parrots perform tricks at a daily bird show.
    Cool off with unlimited rides on the Big Splash, an exhilarating 9-minute water journey through New Zealand’s ecological evolution. Board your boat and ride past extinct creatures such as dinosaurs, moa and the predatory Haast’s eagle — all brought to life by animatronics. 
    With your all-day ticket, you can stay on until dark and experience the park illuminated at night.

    We visited on a Saturday and spent in total about two hours here. We paid the extra $10 for the hatchery tour, even though at the moment there are no baby fluffy kiwis as it is the beginning of the breeding season. But we still...More

    We returned to Rainbow Springs today, it has been 3 years since our last trip to Rotorua and felt it was a ‘must see’. Sadly it fell short of expectations. The treewalk and bird watching was enjoyable but parts felt very run down. There is...More
