A special deal for our Australian visitors March 1st to May 31st 2018


For our Australian visitors March 1 to May 31 - 40% discount off entry to KIWI NORTH - Whangarei Museum, Kiwi House and Heritage Park.

The ONLY KIWI and TUATARA viewing opportunity in Northland, NZ.

Plus so much more! Kiwi North is also home to the Whangarei Museum which tells stories of local social and natural history in hte Museum Gallery and displays temporary exhibitions in the Mim Ringer Gallery.  The Museum cares for, or is kaitiaki of, an extensive colleciton of Taonga Maori - feather cloaks, carvings, tools, jewellery and weapons.

This beautiful 25 hextare site is a wonderful place to spend an hour or a whole day.  Relax, stretch your legs and explore.  The original 1886 homestead of htis land is opne daily and is a museum in it's own right.  Built and lived in by the Clarke family for 3 generations before being bought with the land as a museum site, it is in an amazingly original condition.  You will also find the 1860's Oruaiti Chapel, 1898 Riponui Pa School, original jail cells for the women of Whangarei and a replica black smith forge.  Several vintage restoration clubs and societies are resident on the Park and are happy to welcome visitors if they are working there at the time.

See the KIWI in an indoor nocturnal house where their natural environment is replicated, and they live as they would in the wild if they could do safely.  Sadly kiwi chicks and eggs are still lost at 95% in unprotected areas, and it is only becuase of sanctuaries and the breeding and advocacay programme that Kiwi North is a part of that this unique creature survives today.  Similarly New Zealand's living dinosaur, the tuatara, a species that has been around for over 250 million years!  Meet them and other members of New Zealand's unique wildlife here at  Kiwi North.  Our staff would love to share with you just what makes these animals so special.

Kiwi feeding is 3 times per day every day at 11am, 1pm and 3pm with accompanying keeper talk.
