Bird Show

Get ready to be amazed and entertained at our new and dynamic free-flight Bird Show! Come and see our exotic birds in action!

Our colourful (and sometimes noisy!) exotic birds will be showing off their new tricks, skills and engaging antics including skateboard riding, rubbish collecting, balancing on volleyballs and much more! 

During the show you'll learn some fascinating facts and you may even be lucky enough to give our bird trainer a helping hand! 

The free-flight Bird Show runs each day at 11.30am in the Rainbow Arena. During the school holidays we also run an extra show at 2.30pm!* It's fun for the whole family and a must-see on your trip to the park!

Stop and have a chat with our bird show presenters after the show to learn more about their bonds with these beautiful, intelligent birds!

*All shows are weather dependent.
*Guests MUST be seated in the Bird Show Auditorium five minutes before show times. Strictly no late admittance, as it can cause the birds to fly away.


Ride the Big Splash.

Jump aboard The Big Splash ride for a nine-minute journey of discovery! You'll learn some of New Zealand's unique stories and get a splashing good thrill at the end! Age/height restrictions apply.

Discover our fun Playscapes!

Hidden throughout the park are some exciting new Playscapes and Water Play areas that will teach you all about native species and conservation in a fun way! They're FREE with your Day Pass!

Meet Kiwi.

Rainbow Springs will get you closer to kiwi than ever before. During the day, meet kiwi in our nocturnal house or on our Kiwi Encounter tour! At night, see kiwi in our outdoor no glass enclosure (a magical experience not to be missed)!
