Rainbow Springs Nature Park

Meet kiwi & other native birds

Rainbow Springs, Rotorua (482761)

With a kiwi hatchery and interactive animal encounters, Rainbow Springs has been entertaining families since 1932.

Peer at trout and eels through underwater windows, meet the tuatara (see image), rare reptiles that somehow survived the ice ages and are found only in NZ, and learn all about the national bird, the kiwi.

It’s a good Kiwi experience, 3km north of the city.
