National Kiwi Hatchery Experience

Connect with kiwi at our internationally renowned conservation facility.

Be a part of 'conservation in action' as you take an immersive journey through the world of the kiwi at our state-of-the-art, purpose-built facility at Agrodome in Rotorua. 

During your 45 min guided tour you'll learn about Kiwi, their native environment and what makes them truly iconic the world over.  Delve into darkness and spot foraging Kiwi in our purpose-built nocturnal house and discover the secrets of the Kiwi in our dozens of interactive displays. 

You'll get to talk to our Kiwi experts as you see kiwi eggs being incubated, understand the Kiwi hatching process and take a peak at newly hatched kiwi chicks in our state-of-the-art facilities.
