We visited Wingspan on the recommendation of a friend of friends on our recent visit to NZ, well worth the visit, After a very informative talk about the facility and the birds, we were introduced to a morpork, fascinating bird, then taken outside for the free flying harrier display, such awesome birds, amazing how fast they fly!!

Good park, lots of birds of different types, New Zealand Green big wood pigeon I think was the nicest, ducks and birds of prey.
But foremost the Otorohanga KIWI House indoors, and it was dark as they live in those conditions.

Such lovely staff that are passionate about what they do and are willing to share their knowledge. It is a pretty special experience to get so close to these wonderful birds. Being able to hold a falcon is definitely a highlight!

Arrived at the centre for flying display as per leaflet from our motel only to find that despite the advertised times per the leaflets the “daily” flying displays at 2pm do not happen. We were advised by a member of staff that there are only three demos a week. We checked the leaflets in three other places than our motel and they were all out of date. Disappointed is an understatement, why can they not tour the leaflet outlets and withdraw them? Later checking revealed that the web site does give revised information. Be warned!

A must do for Residents and visitors alike, we lived in Rotorua for 3 and a half years and it was a favourite place to go! Better than the gondala, luge and fairy springs put together!! Prices are very good we had memberships for years
