Animal and bird lovers should flock to Rainbow Springs Nature Park, a 9 hectare (22 acre) nature park and wildlife conservation center featuring many rare endemic species, a water ride, and a beautiful natural setting of native plants and streams. The fuzzy little flightless birds known as kiwis are the park's most famous inhabitants, and visitors can get up close and personal with the creatures during a kiwi encounter--a tour of the nursery and hatchery. Cool off with a ride on the big splash, spend time with birds in one of the park's free flight aviaries, or catch an exciting bird show. Your ticket allows you unlimited admission for the day, letting you return at night to observe nocturnal creatures. For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Rotorua holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Rainbow Springs Nature Park and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • A must go
  • I have been before and its been good for kids. The day we went 3 of the 4 "passes" were unavailable but this wasn't on their website from what we saw. Would have been good to be aware of prior to going. I should have realised when carpark was fairly empty and people were walking in then back out fairly quickly.
