Willowbank Wildlife Reserve is one of Christchurch’s most popular visitor attractions offering great family entertainment, an award winning restaurant in a unique setting, a kiwi breeding and conservation programme, rare breeds farmyard area and much more.
Willowbank provides you with a “Kiwi Guarantee” and is home to New Zealand’s largest and most accessible kiwi viewing area. With this unique experience, you will see our natural splendour first hand, and see Kiwis that are not displayed behind glass.
You will see one of the most complete selections of New Zealand native and introduced wildlife in natural bush surroundings. Much wildlife wanders free and is able to be petted and fed.
Willowbank was established over 39 years ago, and is still owned and operated by the same family. We are flexible, professional people intent on making your experience a wonderful one!
