We have been conserving kiwi and other NZ natives since 1971. Visit and learn about our active brown kiwi breeding programme in the heart of the North Island. We are a ‘non-profit’ charity dedicated to the conservation of New Zealand's native wildlife through education, research, display and breeding programs. We welcome visitors to our park as their visit helps us care for our animals.
The world-famous Waitomo Glowworm Caves, Black Water Rafting and caving adventures are a 15-minute drive south and it's just 2 minutes to Otorohanga's main street. We’re 2 hours south of Auckland, 1 hour from the Hobbiton Movie Set, 1.5 hours from Rotorua and Taupo.
