What an incredible place to visit. The birds are fabulous and I really loved the barn owl. I was also lucky enough to be able to catch the falcon on it's flight. This is a wonderful place to learn about the big birds and is great for familes.

Although a freezing day on 1 June 2019, we had a great time at Wingspan. The people were so passionate and knowledgeable about the birds, we were all impressed. Thank you for a great job you guys do for our wildlife.

We had an awesome visit to wing span, where we saw Morpork and falcons with their handlers.
A great education on these beautiful birds and super cool to see the falcons “in action”.
The handlers were very passionate about the rehabilitation and care of the birds.
A great charity to support.
P.s. the new premises was not in google maps when we went but the website has good directions.

Blown away by the hard work the Wingspan group do the birds you see flying so close to you giving you a real experience up close and personal is so different to many of the other New Zealand bird parks
