Otorohanga Kiwi House & Native Bird Park

The best place in NZ to see  Kiwi!

  • Enjoy close-up, all day viewing of our national bird, the Kiwi, in special nocturnal enclosures.
  • Kiwi feeding daily at 10.30am, 1.30pm & 3.30pm,  Kea & Kaka feeding at 11.00am, kakariki at 12.00pm, native Longfin eels at 2.30pm. Keeper talks throughout the day.
  • Walk through New Zealand's largest dome aviary. You might get a chance to help hand-feed the Red-crowned Kakariki (parakeets) - you'll even see Tuatara reptiles, which pre-dated the dinosaurs, basking in the summer sunshine
  • Wander along the Park's tree-lined paths and see a great range of New Zealand native birds - Kea, Kaka, Kakariki (parakeets) native wood pigeons, waterfowl and so much more!...
  • We are just 15 minutes from the Waitomo Glowworm Caves, Black Water Rafting and caving adventure tours
