Otorohanga Kiwi House & Native Bird Park

Zoo in Otorohanga

This bird barn has a nocturnal enclosure where you can see active kiwi energetically digging with their long beaks, searching for food. This is one of the only places where you can see a great spotted kiwi, the biggest of the three kiwi species. Brown kiwi are also on display, and there's a breeding program for these birds here. Other native birds on show include kākā, kea, morepork and weka, and there's also tuatara, NZ's prehistoric reptiles.
