Under the Sun exploring, feeding, laughing, discovering, Day Pass.

A wild day out.

Bring your family along to Rainbow Springs, to meet ours. Get up close and personal with the wonderful birds, bugs and beasts that call New Zealand home. The Under the Sun day pass offers an action-packed, fun-filled, and (whisper it) educational day out. Make sure you take a ride on the Big Splash, and don't forget to head to the crowd-pleasing free-flight Bird Show. We've also got daily Encounters for you to enjoy. 


Kiwi are shy, ground dwelling creatures who only come out under the cover of darkness. However, don't worry about missing them during your daytime visit to Rainbow Springs as entry to our nocturnal kiwi enclosure is included in your day pass!

For an additional $10pp you can join our Kiwi Encounter Behind the Scenes Tour to see exactly how we're helping kiwi at the biggest kiwi hatchery in the world. What's even better is that proceeds from this tour go directly to our kiwi conservation program. 

Under the stars.

Your day pass includes repeat entry for the day of purchase until closing. This means you can come back to the park, when its dark, and meet kiwi in our outdoor no glass enclosure. This is a magical experience not to be missed! The enclosure opens at around 8.45pm, as this is when kiwi are waking up!
