The family-friendly Kiwi Birdlife Park is Queenstown's premier destination for animal-spotting. Situated less than a mile away from downtown Queenstown alongside Skyline Queenstown, Kiwi Birdlife Park offers more than 30 animal species, including brown kiwis, tuataras and rainbow lorikeets.
When visiting this wildlife sanctuary, plan to take in a kiwi feeding and conservation show. Both received tons of praise from former visitors and are packed with loads of information about New Zealand conservation efforts.
Although most travelers walk to Kiwi Birdlife Park from central Queenstown, street parking is available near the attraction. The property is open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. (excluding Christmas). Tickets cost NZ$45 (about $30) for adults and NZ$23 (around $15.50) for children between 5 and 14. Family passes for two adults and up to three children are also offered for NZ$98 (roughly $66). All entrance fares include access to kiwi feedings and conservation shows, animal exhibits and self-guided audio tours. Restrooms, a cafe and a gift shop are also located on-site.
