Stopped here with my Mum and Daughter for the end of our trip. Was an easy walk around the park, and lovely bush walk and animals. Some parts are looking tired and some animals looked like they needed tending to, limping and overgrown fur etc......More

Fantastic place with beautiful paths to walk between animals. Confused on where all the eels were but the kids loved it all anyway!! Hoping to catch a cub next time!!

We visited the Wildlife Park by chance as we found ourselves driving by and were pleasantly surprised. The walking trail took us through New Zealand native forest and wildlife. A good way to fill in an hour or two.

Visited in winter so it wasn't too busy. The lions are amazing, especially when they get vocal! The rest of the wildlife park was good too - I'd recommend buying more animal food than you think you'll need as some of the cutest animals are...More

We went early so missed the feeding of the lions, but it wasn't to busy so could get around the park and see plenty. Really enjoyed feeding the animals on the way round, and the lions were amazing, closest I've ever been to Lions was...More

Hi. You need to contact them directly. I just visited the park ... I don't own or run it.
