Otorohanga Kiwi House and Native Bird Park

From Sunday 22 March, the Otorohanga Kiwi House and Native Bird Park will be closed until further notice as a precaution to slow the spread of COVID-19.

The Otorohanga Kiwi House & Native Bird Park has been breeding Kiwi since 1971. The not-for-profit wildlife and conservation centre displays Kiwi birds all day in specialised moonlit nocturnal houses complete with burrow cameras. And it breeds rare native New Zealand wildlife for release to the wild.

The family-friendly Park offers close up viewing of NZ's national bird, the Kiwi. There are also ponds, wetland areas and walk-through aviaries including a giant dome aviary. Open daily, except Christmas Day. Informative Keeper talks at 10.30am, 1.30pm & 3.30pm (kiwi) plus 11am (native parrots: kea & kaka) 12pm (kakariki) and 2.30pm (long fin eels & blue ducks). All ticket sales are reinvested in the Park's wildlife & conservation work.
