  • MOST amazing place to see Kiwi and Tuatara in Northland and an incredible Museum, Great price for both and goes to a good cause helping protect our living and non living history here in Nz. Great Nz.....  more »
  • I absolutely refuse to pay to enter a provincial museum in NZ when every other one I've visited is free, they attach the kiwi house to it and then chargenaddmission, I've already seen kiwis elsewhere....  more »

  • A nice little spot for around 2 hours.Quite diverse - or random, depending on your viewpoint! As well as the two kiwis, which you may or may not see as they don't always come out even at feeding time, there is a small number of other reptiles, a museum focussed on the local area (the skeleton of the extinct Moa is cool) and some historic buildings that have been moved to this site. All quite interesting and the staff are very friendly and helpful..
  • My three sons loved the trains. The men running it were kind and funny and were happy to wait for us.
