Wildlife Parks

Native birdlife is abundant in Rotorua, particularly in, on and near our beautiful lakes and forests.
Several eco tours and self-guided walks are available for watching, listening and learning more about our feathered friends, including our endearing kiwi and endangered kārearea (New Zealand falcon).
For animal lovers young and old, a number of parks offer up-close-and-personal encounters with native and non-native creatures from our ancient tuatara to lions and adorable alpaca.
