Relaxing 1 walk around nice gardens with an entourage of different birds following us wanting food. The pigeons and doves got a little too friendly, so if you have a pathological fear of birds, this place may not be for you. Our 2 year old...More

So so many gorgeous birds. The entrance fee is very reasonable considering the amount of birds and amazing gardens. The bird food is cheap which is nice too. Would be a perfect day out if you're on a budget with kids. Love this place!

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.
