West Coast Wildlife Centre

All Day Unlimited Pass

Price from £16 per person

This all weather attraction is the official home to the incubation and captive rearing programme for New Zealand’s rarest Kiwi – the Rowi and Haast tokoeka. High quality nature films and interactives bring you the very special opportunity of coming face-to-face with these rare kiwis in a natural walk-through setting. The centre also brings to life the stories and tales of the people of the West Coast; from the rich history surrounding gold-mining and hunting, through to the incredible evolution of the famous Franz Josef glacier itself. An on-site cafe and bakery is open daily and provides traditional West Coast food and drinks as well as a free Wi-Fi zone next to a large fireplace.
