My daughter loves this place so had a great visit on Wednesday this week. She loves the doves feeding from her hands and refuses to go if it is later in the day A Peahen followed her around the whole place and she loved it

The cages were filthy, the animals looked awful. This zoo is terrible. The only zoo that I have seen worse then this one is the Otorohanga Kiwi House. I pitied the animals. Go to a pet store for a better time.

A fabulous place to interact with the birds and enjoy the beautiful grounds. Kids and adults alike love to feed the many birds roaming around. A great little cafe for food, too. Souvenir shop full of lovely, quirky things.

Needs some time and money spending on this to tidy it up. Felt very sorry for 1 lonely bird in a mouldy stark cage. Nice walk.

Needs a bit of tlc and tidy up. Very dingy aviaries. Cafe needs to supply hot drinks that are hot. Just taking dead branches off of top of aviaries would be a start. Signs need work. Laninated ones or written in vivid are not suitable....More
