Know More about this tour

Open daily from 9am to 4:30pm, Pukaha Mount Bruce is New Zealand's National Wildlife Centre. Home to a variety of New Zealand birds and animals. It is the only place in the world where you can view a rare white kiwi.

The daily talks start at 10:30am when we feed our two Takahe - with only 300 left in the world, these flightless birds were thought to be extinct until they were rediscovered just over 65 years ago.

At 11:30am you will be given the opportunity to feed a Tuatara. These animals have remained unchanged since the time of the Dinosaurs! After this at 12pm, it is time for either a Kiwi chick feed or a Gecko talk.

Around this time, you may want to head over to our Wild Cafe overlooking the Takahe enclosure for lunch.

At 1:30pm join in on an Eel feeding where we give our resident Long Fin Eels some food and discuss their amazing journeys to mate. Following this at 2:15pm, we talk about our North Island kokako - the only one in an aviary in New Zealand!

Finally, at 3pm is the Kaka circus. We give our wild native birds a snack and these cheeky parrots give our visitors a show of all their acrobatic skills.

In addition to all of this, you also have the opportunity to enjoy a 2-hour bush walk in restored native bush.

Pukaha Mount Bruce is situated right on State Highway 2 just 20 minutes north of Masterton - right in the heart of the Classic New Zealand Wine Trail. There is ample parking space.
