We did the tour and mentioned a discount we saw in a tourist magazine, and the Park honored it! Great kiwi facility! The bird show run by Ben was fantastic and the conservation work the park does is outstanding! Great place for kids!!

I will leave New Zealand with many fond memories of great experiences, unfortunately this will not be one of them. At 44 dollars per person I left with a bitter taste in my mouth feeling I had been fleeced. The Kiwis are kept in total...More

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 :)
