Willowbank Wildlife Reserve
Willowbank is the only Wildlife Park in New Zealand where you can see New Zealand's Big 5 Wildlife icons in one location. The Takahe, Tuatara, Kea and Kaka are combined with NZ's foremost kiwi display to create the ultimate New Zealand Wildlife Experience. Willowbank provides you with a "Kiwi Guarantee" with no glass. With 50 types of animals and up to 500 individual ones, you're sure to make a brand new furry, scaled or winged friend - much wildlife wanders free and is able to be petted and fed. Based at Willowbank, Ko Tāne is the South Island's only Māori Cultural Experience. This interactive show in a natural bush setting allows visitors to experience first-hand the famous haka, poi and can be combined with a four course dinner with Hāngī cooked mains. Ko Tāne can be combined with Willowbank Wildlife Reserve to make a true ‘kiwi experience’.
