Willowbank Wildlife Reserve, Christchurch Reviews

  • Lots of animals to see including very tame deer and eels! Great for all ages. The Kiwi enclosure was amazing, you get to see a Kiwi foraging for food in a night enclosure up very close. With cheap entry tickets to see some interesting and rare animals, I highly recommend it!

  • A lot for children and adults to see. From seeing birds including our iconic flightless birds and lizards to feeding eel and farm animals. Also has a great picnic area! We like to take our own picnic but there is a dairy on site as well and also pony rides are pretty cheap. Makes for a good couple of hours of entertainment.

  • Really nice. Just two many ducks and geese. Thus A lot of distracting bird poo on the paths. Best place ever to experience kiwi. With only a small fence separating you, you could almost touch the kiwi. Nice barnyard with lots of interaction.

  • So a lot of the best Zoos are free. This one was not, but it was amazing. Never been to place where your can get so up and close to the animals, including kiwi birds. And the animals almost had no fear of people. Really cool experience. My kids loved it.

  • Thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. Very knowledgeable staff. Entertaining and everyone (including the entertainers) seemed to enjoy themselves.
