Each day, over 2 million liters of pure spring water wells up into the natural springs at the park, providing an ideal backdrop for getting up close to New Zealand’s native and endemic species of plant and animal. Check out your complimentary map of the park to decide where you’d like to start your adventure, put on your MP3 audio headsets to hear all the information and fun facts you’d ever want to know, and get started discovering natural New Zealand.|
Stop by the Kiwi House, a purpose-built facility that mirrors natural conditions. Because these magnificent and mysterious birds are nocturnal, the Kiwi House is dimly lit during the day as though by moonlight, giving you the opportunity to view this curious bird as it feeds and forages in the “night.”
Gaze into the various pools to see rainbow, brown, and tiger trout. Feed these beautiful fish with food available at the park entrance, or step into the underwater viewing pool to see these fish eye to eye.
While walking through the various plant species, like the black fern—one of the largest tree ferns in the world—and the huge imported redwoods, keep your eyes peeled for wildlife like rainbow lorikeets, emus, and wallabies. Look down low for the tuatara, a “living fossil” that has been around for over 225 million years—since the Triassic period. This amazing reptile can survive over a year without eating!
