  • A nice place for a short visit to meet some of New Zealand’s native birds up close and personal. The place lends itself to a relaxing stroll while seeing and learning about the birds. It was quiet.....  more »
  • Entry by optional donation, and a lovely location near the Lake Te Anau township. Awesome to see kaka, takahe and other rarely-seen birds up close.  more »

  • Fabulous and free!! Very interesting guided tour showing endangered native Birds and their breeding programme, parakeets, ducks and a little owl! Go at feeding time 9.30am in summer. Happens even when raining!
  • A really nice parklands sanctuary. The enclosures are scattered around and most of the birds are easy to see. Would make a lovely picnic spot. An easy walk from the conservation office along the lakes edge
