Willowbank Wildlife Reserve, Christchurch Reviews

  • Wonderful place to take young children. My preschool aged kids love feeding the eels, watching the fish up close through the glass and seeing a wide range of animals in a small area. It's a short enough loop with options to reduce the walk if you are feeling exhausted carrying children or if you take elderly grand parents. A wonderful asset to Canterbury and very reasonably priced family annual passes. Keep up the great work people. ;)

  • Fantastic little Wildlife reserve. We stopped here as we had some time to kill before our flight back home. When we arrived it had been snowing and then started hailing! But we decided to push on despite the inclement weather. The staff were super friendly and even provided us with complimentary umbrellas to brave the elements with. The park was clean, well set out and we'll kept. The animals all looked happy and healthy (albeit a little cold). Once we finished, we sat inside by the fire to warm up! Would recommend this park if you are in Christchurch and have the time. Would loved to have spent more time here but was a last minute decision which was well worth it.

  • Very good for families, small children. Mostly farm animals and a lot of different birds. You can buy different kinds of animal food, about 4 dollar per bag. Especially the food for the bigger animals is worth to buy! We did big animals and bird food. A nice path goes true the park, easy to follow with multiple toilet stops.

  • Totally love this place! When I first enter, the staff over the counter is super sweet and friendly. I also get to interact and feed most of the animals. The ducks and geese are almost everywhere and they are super friendly when you feed them. I'll definitely be back again!

  • Well looked after animals, cheeky Keas were a highlight especially when one landed on my wife and started chewing her hand bag. The farm area is full of very tame animals and the chance to feed them is perfect for getting up close. Best kiwi enclosure too them within touching distance.
