This is a walk thru park, set in bush, with interesting things to discover along the way. At 11:00am and 3:00pm daily, there is a conservation show telling visitors about native birds in the park, including the kiwi, and also a chance to see close up one of our very special Tuatara reptiles. This was quite amazing, seeing him without glass between us!
The whole experience is very informative and there are tours of the early Maori village, 10:00am & 2:00pm daily.
Here we learn about saving the endangered Kiwi, Black Stilt, Brown Teal, Campbell Island Teal, Tuatara, NZ Pidgeon and Blue Duck. Kiwi are nocturnal, therefore photographing is virtually impossible. For the outdoors display and talk from the staff, they use a stuffed kiwi and egg.
It's an easy walk around the park, and there is also a nice caf? for you to have refreshments after your walk.

Address: Brecon Street, Queenstown.
