What an fabulous place and such good value! Only a short but beautiful drive from Port Chalmers gets you to this hidden treasure. Friendly staff, glorious facilities and amazing wildlife. Spent 3 and1/2 hours there and would have loved to have stayed longer, stunning, cant wait to return.

Orokonui Ecosanctuary is a wonderful place. A truly natural environment in which to discover NZ Native Bird life, Lizards and Fish. A wonderful experience. And the Cafe is very good too.

the Ecosanctuary works so hard to protect and preserve our native species - with little public funding. I encourage everyone to take a visit and enjoy the bush/birds and wildlife setting. Coffee and rabbit pie at the café is also a must!

So close to Dunedin, and wow, it feels like you are hours away, not a mere 30 minutes. Beautiful sanctuary to see native NZ wildlife, explore trails and smell the eucalyptus smell from the gum trees!
