Rainbow Springs is truly an attraction like no other in the world. Set amongst beautiful native trees and streams we are home to a huge variety of New Zealand’s most precious inhabitants.
We are built around New Zealand’s largest and most successful kiwi conservation centre. Since 1995 we have released over 1,350 kiwis into the wild.
Experience the adrenalin rush of The Big Splash, explore our many free flight aviaries, feed the birds their breakfast, come face to face with pre-history in the eyes of our many tuatara, talk to Jenny the hand-reared kea, feed the largest wild trout you will ever see, experience the wonder of our bird show featuring some of the funniest feathered performers you will ever see.
Your ticket is valid for repeat entry for the day of the purchase so come back at night to watch the kiwi come out to play. With no glass in our outdoor kiwi enclosure, you can get closer to kiwi thank you ever thought possible!
