Rainbow Springs is truly an attraction like no other in the world. Set in 22 acres of beautiful native trees and streams we are home to a huge variety of New Zealand’s most precious inhabitants. Land was first purchased in 1929 and while there were many developments, there was always one vision for the land, that was to create a wildlife park with a strong focus on conservation.
Today the Park is an award winning tourist attraction with great features including kiwi, trout, tuatara, pigs, sheep, native birds and trees and New Zealand's only 'open to view' kiwi hatchery and rearing facility. The entire experience is built around New Zealand’s largest and most successful kiwi conservation centre. You will also be able to experience the adrenalin rush of The Big Splash, explore our many free flight aviaries, feed the birds their breakfast, come face to face with pre-history in the eyes of our many tuatara, talk to Jenny the hand-reared kea, feed the largest wild trout you will ever see and experience the wonder of our bird show featuring some of the funniest feathered performers you will ever see.
