Willowbank Wildlife Reserve, Christchurch Reviews

  • This place is amazing. Its a must see place, you can see a wide variety of wild and domestic animals, and New Zealand's endemic wild life. The Kiwi habitat is beautiful and if you wait enough time to adjust your eyes to the low light and use your ears to hear them rustling around, you will see them. I personally saw 4 of them, they were really cute and it was interesting seeing them sniffing and running around.

  • Great fun place to visit. Had a good 2 hours of interactions with the animals. Miss 7 really enjoyed it. Our coffee would have been nicer served with our food and cabinet food seemed a bit stale (hard). However we would be happy to go back again.

  • Best place in Christchurch to have a year pass to. Kids of all ages love it and you can be there as long or short as you wish! Shortest trip was 5 minutes!! Got to the eels and my 2 year old had a tantrum so we went home. Highly recommend getting an annual pass! You will get your money's worth.

  • Great place for all the family , make sure you buy some of the animal feed at the reception to hand feed some of the animals such as deer's,ducks,pigs,llamas, geese,fish and a number of others. A chance to catch sight of kiwi's,lemurs ,monkeys and other wildlife up close . great cafe. Give yourself plenty of time to get round the whole park as there is a lot to see and do

  • I absolutely adore this place. Our kids had so much fun (plus I had even more fun!) and were super happy. Feeding eels never gets old. The whole place is beautifully made, it feels so natural and peaceful. Animals look happy and are very friendly. Love it!
