We did the 'behind the scenes' tour which is really worth the money. You get quite a good view on their outstanding work protecting the kiwi.
Save up to 70% on campsite fees! Support conservation and experience the natural beauty of NZ. 79 Department of Conservation campsites, one convenient pass.
Excellent way to see kiwi in near natural habitat. Quite short though.
Access savings worth hundreds of $$ on Top Ranked NZ Accommodation and Activities for just $1 per day.
This is a small but lovely indoor park. We would recommend the backstage tour where you can see the chicks.
It was special that I could see the bird.
Overpriced, but worth it just to see the Kiwi. No need for other needless information, eg stuff to buy if you wish to live on the West Coast.
It was really good but there was only three kiwis.
Lovely to see Kiwi and get really close to them, even though in semi-darkness. The exhibition was mixed - some very interesting parts but others not so - we liked the bits about the wildlife. Quite expensive, but a good cause.
Our son loves Kiwis, so we had to take him to see one at the Kiwi Centre in Franz Joseph. NZ$70 to see two Kiwis!!!!! Rip off. They were two of a particular type of Kiwi, for the price they charged, they should have had all of the types of Kiwis there.
Once you have seen the Kiwis, there are a couple of pitiful displays on the threats to them, then you move into an area on glaciers. It was the most expensive 15 minutes of my life.
