Description

Whether you are walking through our many free flight aviaries, feeding the biggest wild trout you will ever see, watching the birds being fed or coming face to face with pre-history in the eyes of a Tuatara – all of us here at Rainbow Springs are proud of the role we play in conserving many of the precious native species of New Zealand. Allow minimum 1hour to visit the park. Includes kiwi nocturnal enclosure, unlimited rides on The Big Splash, the live bird show and all day entry into Rainbow Springs.

The Live Bird Show is filled with fascinating facts and engaging antics performed by our colourful and sometimes noisy exotic parrots. Our feathered entertainers don’t just fly, some of them will also show off their amazing intellects and skills with a range of games and tricks which are sure to be crowd pleasers. Show is 20 minutes in duration at 11.30am daily.

The Big Splash isn’t just the adrenalin rush at the end as you accelerate towards the water creating a spectacular and exhilarating plume of water; it is a 9 minute journey through time as we explore the ecological evolution of New Zealand. State of the art animatronics and projection technology bring to life dinosaurs, Moa, the incredible Haast Eagle, the arrival of humans and so much more.
Ride runs from 9am – 4.30pm daily.

Kiwi Encounter is New Zealand’s largest and most successful kiwi conservation centre. We offer unique 30 minute behind-the-scenes tours of a working kiwi nursery and hatchery. During the tour you will see each of the stages a kiwi chick goes through before being released in to the wild – incubation, hatching and raising. Tours run from 10am – 4pm daily, bookings required. Small additional fee per person for this tour (donated to the kiwi conservation programme).
