A trip to New Zealand would be incomplete without viewing its national bird, the kiwi. The Kiwi Birdlife Park is a not-for-profit conservation park which hosts over 20 species of local birds and reptiles. It takes special care to provide the birds the closest to a natural habitat possible, with keeping the nocturnal kiwi in a dark space. The kiwi is also not visible in the open, and this is one of the few places in New Zealand where you can observe them from such a close distance.
The park also conducts an informative yet fun conservation show, which teaches the audience about the in-house species and the team’s conservation efforts, all while the birds fly around in the open arena.
This is a great location for a family to spend a Sunday Morning at, and it will be a great learning experience for the young ones. You can also view a kiwi feeding session, or take an audio tour of the whole facility. The park is also home to a Bee Centre, in which you can view indoor and outdoor beehives, and even sample some honey for free! So immerse yourself in the lush green surroundings with the chirping of the birds, and buckle in for a wholesome yet educating day!
The entire park is spread across 5 acres of green land, with different areas dedicated to different species. There are a few ponds and water bodies for species such as the Rainbow Trout and Brown Trout, and different houses built for the kiwis in order to maintain a dark surrounding.
There is also a separate building for the Bee Centre. It is located in the city of Queenstown, and hence is easily accessible to tourists for a day visit.
