Set amongst the native trees and beautiful forests of Rotorua, Rainbow Springs offers a fun-filled and action-packed day out for the whole family. Learn all about New Zealand’s fascinating natural history and meet the interesting creatures who call this great land of ours home. Whether you are walking through our many free-flight aviaries, feeding the biggest wild trout you will ever see, watching the birds being fed or coming face-to-face with pre-history in the eyes of a Tuatara – all of us here at Rainbow Springs are proud of the role we play in conserving many of the precious native species of New Zealand. Each day our team of experts also run special encounters which allow you to get closer than ever to some of our favorite park residents!
It’s that time of year when kiwi chicks are hatching and we’ve had 91 hatches so far this season at Kiwi Encounter! Rainbow Springs is home to the world’s largest and most successful kiwi hatchery! Kiwi come out at night, but don’t worry about missing them on your visit to Rainbow Springs as entry to our nocturnal kiwi enclosure is included in your Day Pass! For an unforgettable experience, join our Kiwi Encounter Behind the Scenes Tour to see exactly how we’re helping kiwi right here in Rotorua. Every tour booked is a 100% donation to our kiwi conservation programme. Kids go FREE on this tour too these school holidays!
