Observe more than 20 native bird species —including New Zealand’s namesake, the kiwi — with admission to Kiwi Birdlife Park in central Queenstown. See wildlife shows, nature exhibits and daily keeper presentations, and catch a rare sight of the flightless kiwi in a nocturnal enclosure. In addition to these feathered stars, take a look at critters such as the Auckland green gecko, the kea and a prehistoric tuatara. Your admission ticket is valid for the entire day so you can explore the park at your own pace.
  • Admission ticket to Kiwi Birdlife Park in Queenstown
  • View more than 20 types of native birds, plus geckos and the tuatara

The Kiwi Birdlife Park, a 5-acre (2-hectare) wildlife park conveniently located in central Queenstown, offers a family-friendly experience. With your all-day admission ticket, explore the park at your own pace and make use of a complimentary audio tour to learn about the attractions. 

At the New Zealand Conservation Show, held twice daily in an outdoor area enclosed in netting, birds like the kakariki (a type of parakeet) and the kereru, or New Zealand pigeon, can fly free. You can also get an up-close look at birds of prey, and learn about pateke (a type of duck), buff weka (a flightless bird) and Antipodes Island parakeets. 

Head to the Tuatara Encounter, where you’ll come in contact with a prehistoric lizard that is sometimes referred to as a living dinosaur.

Step into specially designed nocturnal enclosures for optimal viewing of kiwi birds, New Zealand’s national bird. Witness kiwi feedings and learn about the flightless birds’ underground burrows where they prefer to sleep during daylight hours. 

Take a forest walk past trout-filled streams and hear about the park’s conservation efforts, which include rehabilitation of injured wildlife and the breeding of kiwis for release in the wild.

When hunger calls, you can purchase light meals and snacks at the on-site cafe.

Excellent presentation of the wild-life in and around Queenstown. The Kiwi's themselves are hardly visible in the gloomy light of their houses - due to the fact that they are nocturnal. Lovely park but quite a bit of walking involved for anybody with mobility problems.
