This free access bird sanctuary, that you can combine with a nice walk around the lake offers a close look at many local endangered bird species. You can see Takahe, Owls, ducks, Kaka and more. While you have a better chance to see some of the shyer birds around feeding times (9.30 summer), if you take your time, you can see all the birds that are kept here. Most of the birds have some sort of defect or injury and would not survive in the wild, which is another very good thing about this place. It is not a zoo out to make money, but it gives theses anials a chance at surival and combines this goal with giving humans a chance to appreciate the rare birds of NZ that still exist.
