The Kiwi Birdlife Park is a small gem in the middle of the hustle of downtown Queenstown. It's a refreshing break from the extreme adventure businesses vying for your attention. A great opportunity to see protected species and learn about New Zealand's conservation efforts.

Well worth makeing the effort to go here. The Kiwi enclosure is fantastic and a great display. All the talks / feedings are informative and interesting, with very close encounters with birds (flying near your head). We spent an easy 2 hours here.

Hi, thanks for getting in touch. Unfortunately, you will need to purchase your gondola and Kiwi Birdlife Park tickets separately as we no longer offer the Kiwi Kombo. We hope that you are able to visit our Park :)
