"Kiwi and Birdlife Park" Kiwi & Birdlife Park. Tip by Mez77

Kiwi & Birdlife Park., Queenstown: 9 reviews and 23 photos


The Kiwi & Birdlife Park was set up to display and protect endangered New Zealand Birdlife. All through the park ,signage tells the story of NZ's native birds.

The must see place in the park is the "Kiwi House". As Kiwi's are nocturnal you are not likely to see them in the wild. The Kiwi is very shy and elusive so you have to wait about 5-10 minutes in the dark and silence before they begin to emerge from their hiding places in the ferns.

There are also many aviaries throughout the bushland, which reflect each bird species natural habitat.

The Kiwi & Birdlife Park is located near the Gondola terminal and from memory cost around $14.50.

Address: Brecon Street, Queenstown.
Directions: Located next to the Gondola entry.
Phone: 64 3 442-8059
