Kiwi Bird Park

This place was a great “hidden” gem – there were two houses with 2 kiwi birds in each that were experiencing night time during our day- we could see their round shaggy shapes hustling and bustling around in the semidarkness. It was shocking how active they were. The keeper put on wellies and fed a potential breeding pair a disc with insects in it. When he played a recording of a kiwi’s cry, the female raced to her nest box.
