    A very humbling walk through the magnificent steaming lakes, bubbling streams and geezers. The climb up to the top of the hill to view the lake is well worth it to take in the scale of the area and rest with an incredible outlook.

    The paths are exceptionally well maintained and all the staff knowledgeable on the geology and ecological aspects of maintaining the beauty of the reserve.

    I took my son and family here not expecting to enjoy it myself, however I did, it was a very interesting place to visit, we saw Kiwi birds , parrots and many other birds, fish in natural rivers, fish hatcheries, and beautiful plants. Fun water boat trip which I enjoyed several times, it is really nicely done. Bit disappointed in lack of choice in the restaurant but everywhere else was well worth a visit, considering there was 3 generations visiting.

    Animals you can pat & feed out of your hand, and animals you want to admire from a distance... Lions, Trout, Ducks, Goats, Pigs, sheep, Emu, etc.. along with lovely nature walks. Fun for the whole family to enjoy. We took a picnic which we enjoyed on the grass while watching the animals. We went on mothers day & mothers got in free! Overall Great experience.

    Stunning day, passionate people, informative and interesting. Up close and personal with some of our threatened New Zealand birds . We came away with so much to think about. Well organised, great communication and thoroughly enjoyable. Possibly more suited to older children rather than little ones.

    Such a great cause to support too. Thank you
