Owner description: See Kiwi in a natural environment - there is no glass! Get close to Kea, Tuatara and other native icons. Willowbank Wildlife Reserve is also home to introduced and exotic breeds. Make your own way around the park and animals will eat right out of your hand. Willowbank is open from 9.30Am daily - kiwis are able to be viewed from 10.30Am until close.

This Christchurch attraction is okay, but won't knock you out. The primary attraction is a show about Maori culture featuring highly talented, energetic, and engaging performers. Still, animals (mostly imported, as New Zealand has no native mammals) and birds are always fun to see.

Well maintained wildlife reserve. You get to see Kiwis right at the end but there are extraordinary birds shown along the reserve. A great adventure!

This is a fabulous place for families of young children. Its a hands on type of place where the little ones can touch and feed the animals.

We purchased an annual pass as this is an experience which you can do time and time again. It's a great adventure for children and also adults. There are so many different elements to explore!

Always love coming here, suitable for all ages. One of the staff working at the entrance was rude and otter enclosure needed a spruce up. Apart from that, was great.
