Immerse yourself in our tropical butterfly house or travel back in time in Dinosaur Kingdom when dinosaurs ruled. Meet Scar and Goldie, New Zealand’s only salt water crocodiles. We have Kiwi, farm animals, alligators, a beautiful bird aviary plus see mermaids, unicorns and dragons in our newest exhibit Mythic Creatures.

Sit down for home-made food in our café, ride our train or relax in the free playground. We offer kids birthday parties, functions and catering. Plus we’re a fun educational day out for schools and Early Childhood Education centres (ECEs).
