Great place to take a family or a couple. Staff are friendly and well informed, also willing to help. Lots of Native birds and fauna. Not expensive at all.

Went in hoping, nay expecting to see the national bird. No chance. I could not see a thing in the kiwi house. Plenty of other wildlife to see. There are better places.

We spent a couple of hours here and you definitely need more time to experience everything that it has to offer. Firstly, do the Kiwi tour as early as you can as they go to sleep after midday, no-one tells you before you go in....More
