We loved seeing the kiwis and returned at night to see them again. My kids loved feeding the fish. The show was entertaining with birds doing tricks like balancing on balls. We even put on plastic ponchos and did the water ride! We spent the...More

We had a fairly quick tour with an okay guide. There was a great deal to see, so I recommend planning more time after the guided part (necessary to go in to the kiwi viewing area).

We stopped here as part of a cruise ship excursion on the way to Wai-O-Tapu. The tour was fairly short, given the price of admission, but the guide made it interesting.

The walk through Rainbow Springs itself is lovely but for the overall experience it is extremely overpriced. We won't be returning anytime soon.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
