I'm one of the many Kiwis that's not actually seen a Kiwi until now! The Kiwi Birdlife Park do truly amazing conservation work and it was an absolute pleasure to tour the place and actually visit many of the native species we only see on the internet. The level of love and care the staff put into their birds is... More

This 5 acre property offers a small range of birds to see. It was enjoyable but quite expensive for what it was, however the money goes to a good cause so that was what convinced us to go. We went to the kiwi feeding which was crowded with people and found that when we hung around when everybody left after... More

The admssion is about 48 NZD per adult. There are many types of birds, reptiles, and others within the park. I think their two best spots are the Kiwi Houses and the Conservation show. Don't expect that the you will be able to see the Kiwi birds as it happens by chance. The place called "Kiwi House" where you can... More

I've been to the park with a friend during August 2016 and it was better than I thought. The crew members of the park are very nice, the park is clean and it permits you to go very close to the animals, in this case birds; so many different species but the bests are Kiwis, they're so beautiful and very...

The entrance is conveniently placed by the exit to the gondola. It's inexpensive and goes to a great cause. The park is quiet and filled with information. Lots of events are happening constantly around the park. Great fun if you like things a little slower paced.

Highly recommend to visit the park which is located next to the Gondola for Skyline Queenstown & for a rare chance to observe the nocturnal Kiwi birds in a specially darken enclosure. The park is very well run by the family's 2nd generation and we saw the level of dedication, love and care they offer the native birds at the... More

Such an amazing paradise so close to town. I have lived here for 12 years and had no idea it was so beautiful and natural there. It's own freshwater spring, fish, and loads of native birds. Thanks for showing us around guys.

What a nice surprise to find this little gem in the middle of NZ's Adventure capital. So many rare birds, set in an epic forrest of all our native trees. The open air bird show is an absolute must see!

After many many years of living in New Zealand, I'd never seen a kiwi bird before - let alone three of them, roaming around during feeding time. Well worth timing that you see the show - So many animals doing tricks! The park is amazing, great value for money, so much nature to see <3
