We saw all the animals including the Kiwis. The young children we were travelling with enjoyed themselves looking at all the animals and also enjoyed the bird show.

We just dropped by in there when we finished from gondola. There is such a nice coffee and little snack for kids. This place was nice to walk and watching show. You'd better prepare for $50 note for amazing experience.

The place isn small but nice. Yoy can see the bird's fed and listen to a commentary. You can take a gadget with you and listen to commentaries about everything you see.

Hi, thanks for getting in touch. Unfortunately, you will need to purchase your gondola and Kiwi Birdlife Park tickets separately as we no longer offer the Kiwi Kombo. We hope that you are able to visit our Park :)
