This is a great stop over to see the the birds of New Zealand. There are a fair few birds here in different areas and you can even do a walk to get close to the lake which was so nice too! We spent approx 30 minutes here exploring. There is a big parking area!

This isn't a zoo, not at all. We avoid all zoos or anything we where believe animals are not be treating correctly. This sanctuary, although in need of an update, the cages etc, is assisting with breeding programmes of endangered and injured birds. Donation boxes all around.



Evil duck still there.. Still angry AF! Otherwise it's a really nice place
