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
This is such a special place. The staff are all so passionate, and it's evident when you stop and have a chat to any of them. They are doing some great work, and the $50 entry fee will get you all day access, as well as allow you to return in case you missed one of their presentations. It's a small but thoughtful and well laid out park. I would love to return in 5 years and see what expansions they have made!
This was an amazing place, the staff were very friendly and patient, and you can see them feed the kiwis. Some might say that the $50 fee is expensive, but it grants you access to the park all day and you can even leave and come back. Definitely a place to go if you're staying in Queenstown.
An absolutely awesome experience and you feel confident knowing that your entry fee is going to a good place for the right reasons. Be sure to make it to one of the shows at 4pm!
Lovely conservation centre! I went to the conservation show and kiwi feeding and really enjoyed it. I also saw some wild fantails and tui. It's not cheap at $50 but it's worth it. Great gift shop too.
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.
