Dont waste your time or money visiting this park, we got to the counter to be met by the man that owned it, there is no cafe as stated when we looked online, the train wasn’t working he told us he hadn’t bothered to get it out, we wanted to feed the eels only to be told there weren’t any, so three things that were meant to be there weren’t.
There were ALOT of parrots some kept in terribly small cages which made me feel sick for even visiting this park. There were numerous birds that looked ill with missing feathers all over their chests - my 11 year old son was very distressed. The park was dirty and overgrown and needed a good water blast and gardener to clean it all up.
There were also some very unfriendly geese which meant we couldn’t walk all over the park. We left within an hour vowing to NEVER return.

The children (9 and 3) enjoyed their visit, as anything with animals always delights. HOWEVER, the adults were horrified. The place stank of animal poo. The exotic birds were caged in such a miserable environment - only a bare branch to perch on if they were lucky. No greenery, no stimulation - nothing! The place was just so depressing - soulless and desolate. We were very tempted to report it to the SPCA. Still might. They should visit the Bulls Wool Heritage Park in Karangahake for a lesson on how it should be done.

Was looking up things to do in Whitianga with 2 kids under 10.
Such a good price for what you see. It was great and the kids loved it.
Highly recommend.
