Science in our Forest.

Discover weird, wonderful and practical science at Rainbow Springs this summer at the Science in our Forests exhibition.

Find out about the world class science happening in our forests and see what the future might look like. See live insects up close, learn more about how we can protect our forests, have a go at flying a miniature drone and get a glimpse into the future of a wood-powered world. 

Scientists will also present a variety of educational talks to inspire and educate you and your future scientists throughout January. 

The exhibition runs 16th December - 6th February 2018 and is presented by Scion, Crown research institute. 

New Bird Show.

Get ready to be amazed and entertained at our new and dynamic free-flight bird show. Each day at 11.30am and 2.30pm, during these school holidays, you can see our exotic birds in action! 

They’ll be showing off their new tricks and skills including skateboard riding, rubbish collecting, balancing on volleyballs and much more! During the show you will meet our colourful birds, learn some fascinating facts and get to see their engaging antics! You may even be lucky enough to give our bird trainer a helping hand during the show!

The free-flight bird show is a must-see for adults and children. Stop and have a chat with our bird show presenters after the show to learn more about their bonds with these beautiful, intelligent birds!

The Big Splash.

Jump aboard The Big Splash 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.
