National Kiwi Hatchery Experience

An unforgettable insight into our internationally renowned conservation programme. 

Learn all about New Zealand’s national icon at the world’s leading kiwi hatchery and discover how we have successfully hatched over 2100 kiwi chicks. Watch genuine ‘Conservation in Action’ in our purpose-built incubation facility and if you’re lucky see a newly hatched kiwi chick!

After your 45-minute guided experience, take more time to learn in our interactive kiwi burrow – where you can stand in a human sized kiwi burrow or sit in a giant kiwi egg. See adult kiwi roam and forage in our purpose-built Nocturnal house.

100% of funds go to the National Kiwi Recovery Trust.
