Set amongst the native trees and beautiful forests of Rotorua, Rainbow Springs offers a fun-filled day out for the whole family. You'll learn all about New Zealand’s fascinating natural history and meet the interesting creatures who call this great land of ours home.
Each day our wildlife team run lots of Animal Encounters which allow you to get closer than ever to some of our favourite park residents including trout, reptiles and native birds.
There's always lots of exciting new things to see and do in the park! Get ready to be amazed and entertained at our new and dynamic free-flight Bird Show. Explore weird, wonderful and practical science at the Science in our Forests experience. Or have endless fun discovering our awesome new Playscapes and Waterplay area. You can now also meet Whio (blue ducks), our new park residents!
Remember to jump aboard the Big Splash ride on your visit to the park and get ready to be thrilled! You can ride as many times as you like!
Kiwi are shy, ground dwelling creatures that only come out at night. However, don't worry about missing them on your visit to Rainbow Springs as entry to our nocturnal kiwi enclosure is included in your Day Pass! For an unforgettable experience, join our Kiwi Encounter Behind the Scenes Tour to see exactly how we're helping kiwi at the most successful hatchery in the world. Every tour booked is a 100% donation to our kiwi conservation programme!
