Halloween at Rainbow Springs is back.

This year it's going to be spookier than ever, with something for all our Halloween lovers.

Book now online  tickets are limited, so get in quick! We are a fun and safe place for all ages to trick-or-treat this Halloween.

The first annual Rainbow Springs Pumpkin Art Contest is now open for entries. Get into your garden or down to the veggie store, grab a pumpkin of any kind (or any vegetable for that matter!) and make it into something of your own. Carve it, paint it, glue stuff on it – it’s up to you!

Bring your family along to Rainbow Springs, to meet ours. 

Set amongst the native trees and beautiful forests of Rotorua, Rainbow Springs Nature Park offers a fun-packed and educational experience for the whole family. Learn about New Zealand’s fascinating natural history and meet the creatures who call this great land of ours home.

Each day our team of experts run special Encounters which allow you to get closer than ever to some of our favourite park residents including trout, reptiles and native birds.

For an unforgettable experience, join our Kiwi Encounter Behind the Scenes Tour to see exactly how we're helping kiwi at the biggest kiwi hatchery in the world. Every tour booked is a 100% donation to our kiwi conservation programme.

Make sure you take a ride on the Big Splash, and don't forget to head to the crowd-pleasing Bird Show. Find the purple markers hiding throughout the park and enter our monthly Find It competition!

With so much to do in the park you might want to Plan Your Day!
