It is fun interacting with different animals!
Dec 2020
We love feeding the ducks, the salmon and the farm animals. We also love to interact with the birds specially with the Cockatoo. They are very friendly. My daughter enjoys petting other animals like the bunny.

Spectacular Staglands
Nov 2020
We loved our trip to Staglands. We had no idea what to expect. We loved how close we could get to the animals. The kids (baby goats) jumped up on my husband's knees and climbed on his back. We saw so many animals. The peacocks were spectacular, especially as they had their tails extended to attract the peahens. The river and the ponds are beautiful, and the bush has all grown back from when the land was cleared to develop the park. It looks so lush and green.
It was cold the day we went but we had hot drinks and food before and after our time outside. I took masses of great photos. The staff were friendly and helpful. I would definitely go there again. Great for kids (human ones and goat ones).

Thank you for your 5* review! Thank you for wonderfully describing your recent visit to Staglands. Our birds and animals, apart from being really cute, have different quirks and very interesting personalities. Our kid goats are particularly playful and are always eager to be fed. Will pass this review on to our staff, they will surely be pleased to hear of your feedback. We hope to see you again at Staglands, in the warmer season maybe?

Good park, good cafe
Jul 2020
The park is good for young kids, a place to see farm animals and wildlife. It's not very interesting for adults, just a gentle walk with not much information or anything to hold interest, but worth it to keep younger kids entertained for a couple of hours plus the drive. Don't go if it's been raining the day or two before, or at least wear gumboots and put a bag in the boot to get them home.

The cafe is pretty good too. The burgers were very nice, a bit tall to be practical to eat, but really tasty especially the halloumi burger. The chips are very good too, crunchy on the outside and soft in the middle, but you have to buy them separately. Cakes are good, but need to be warmed before being served.

Thank you for your thorough description of your recent experience here! Staglands is a great place for both adults and kids to connect with nature. For most adults, visits here can be quite relaxing because of the beautiful environment we are located in. Thank you for your feedback on the Cafe, too. We will pass this on to our Cafe staff. We hope to see you again soon!

Wildlife reserve visit
Nov 2019
Well organized wildlife reserve, with animals happy and healthy. Be careful in the deer area, some of the animals can be a bit agressive when they see food bags. If you don’t like this, keep the food bag hidden of they will sniff it out! There are plenty of signs to warn you. Great place for kids, with several things to see other than just animals. Worth a stop at the small onsite cafe. Well priced, good food, and great staff.

Thank you for your review! We are glad that you found our reserve organized and our animals happy and healthy. Feeding time is always an exciting event for our animals and they can get overly enthusiastic. Will pass this on to our staff - they will surely be delighted! We hope to see you again soon!

Hire a car while in Wellington to come to this and enjoyed our wander around looking at the animals, very peaceful environment. The very narrow road was scary in parts.

Kids enjoy it
Aug 2019
Compact area (not much walking) filled with a variety of farm animals and smattering of native birds etc. It impressed the kids (4 and 1) and was an enjoyable afternoon outing.

The access road is windy with a few blindspots, be prepared to take it easy and you'll be fine.

Great Day out for the family
Jan 2019
I have been to Staglands twice now, growing up in Upper Hutt i always wanted to go but never got to so as and adult I was very excited to finally go! We have taken my step daughter there twice and she always really enjoys it as well as us adults. We have been in winter and summer and both are good times to go, it was very busy in summer and the animals weren't to keen on eating as they had had a lot of people through by the time we got there, but in winter there weren't as many people so it was great! Highly recommend if you love animals and want a nice day out with the Family or friends.
