Rainbow Springs has lots to offer, so make sure you give yourself at least 2 hours to see everything. Our Nature & Wildlife guided tours depart every half hour starting at 9am - try to plan your arrival just before a tour to make the most of your time at our unique nature park.
Check out the highlights of our 40-minute Nature & Wildlife guided experience and join our experts to get up-close with some of our favourite park residents including trout, reptiles, and native birds.
After your tour, hop on the Big Splash ride to hear some of New Zealand’s unique stories – with a thrill at the end!
We also have new hands-on play installations scattered around the park that will teach you about native species and conservation.
Remember to swing past our café any time for coffee, snacks and lunch to keep you going throughout the day. We have a fabulous new menu on offer including whitebait fritters, lamb burgers, summer tomato soup, sandwiches, salads, cakes and icecreams! You can also bring along your own picnic to enjoy in the park and there’s a large kids playpark and the Big Splash ride right next to our picnic tables!
