Kiwi Birdlife Park - Review
Among the various other things that are a part of New Zealand’s original recipe, the main ingredient, apart from The Lord of The Rings, is the country’s national bird. Now, you aren’t likely to spot any Kiwi’s when you venture into the wilderness of New Zealand. In fact, you stand a better chance viewing them up close along with other birds that are the pride of New Zealand, not to mention the 30 other species you’ll get to see. Spread over 5 acres, visitors can enjoy a wide range of activities from wildlife shows to forest trails to having an encounter with the dinosaur of today’s world.

Kiwi Birdlife Park, Queenstown Reviews
While admission is on the pricey end, it is worth it to support a truly not for profit sanctuary that puts Conservation first, with breeding programs for endangered species in which animals are released into the wild. With a focus on education, don't miss out on the conservation show and kiwi feeding/information show. Also take the walk around the small sanctuary that aims to maintain the natural NZ environment and attract wild birdlife to its ecosystem. Some of the park was under construction when i went - removing introduced tree species and replanting native NZ flora. Guaranteed to see a Kiwi! Although no photos - as they are kept in a dark room to maintain their nocturnal habits while allowing visitors to see them in the day time. All in all a lovely way to spend a morning or afternoon.
As the saying goes 'It's not about the quantity, but the quality is what matters'. This is very true with this park. There is a limited but good number of native birds, and finally I managed to see a kiwi bird - the lighting at the kiwi bird house was spot on for human eyes to see them. The staff are knowledgeable and know what they're talking about. Give yourself a good two hours if you don't want to miss anything in the park. The best part was the conservation show. I'd say the $49 for entry is well worth it, especially given the fact that it goes into conserving NZ native birds.
Great bird park. The informative talk was fantastic. Kiwi display brilliant. A must do in Queenstown
4 stars because it's almost NZ$50, which I feel is a bit pricey for how small the sanctuary is. A free self-guided audio tour that is informative about natve wildlife and Maori culture. A good way to see living kiwis and to support their conservation.
A bit pricey entrance ticket but worth every penny if you know the money goes into good use of the people who work in the park/conservation. The conservation show and kiwi bird feeding were both excellent. My husband and I had a great time in the park walking around checking out all different types of birds! You can feel people who work there have such a passion of conservation and the shows were quite entertaining as well! I don’t normally like zoo but this is the very few exceptions that I do enjoy!
