Owner description: See Kiwi in a natural environment - there is no glass! Get close to Kea, Tuatara and other native icons. Willowbank Wildlife Reserve is also home to introduced and exotic breeds. Make your own way around the park and animals will eat right out of your hand. Willowbank is open from 9.30Am daily - kiwis are able to be viewed from 10.30Am until close.

this is not a zoo its a wild life park, you may actually have to open your eyes to spot the animals, but it is well worth the look. Staff are friendly, animals look happy and love a good feed when you are going past athough its just that they are pigs as they look well cared for. Well worth a visit.

Took my own children in the 70s when Willowbank first opened.We loved it.
Now 40 years later I have taken a whole team of primary school children to Willowbank and had trouble getting them to go back to school at the end of the day.They loved the baby Lemurs and had fun hand feeding (and touching ) the eels in the stream.Great place to have a picnic or you can buy food there.( Food for the animals as well )
I can't recommend this place enough- it is fabulous,

Best Kiwi encounter in New Zealand. Whilst not being the biggest Zoo around Willowbank is very well maintained and the animals well cared for.

What a find! After reading about Willowbank many times we decided to go and visit for ourselves. Lovely setting and good cafe but we did think the admission fee was a bit expensive.
