Kia ora and welcome to Kiwi North.
Only 2 hours north of Auckland, Kiwi North is a 62 acre park with many visitor and educational attractions. Our mission is the preservation and conservation of both natural and social history for the benefit of all, now and in the future.
Here you will find the only captive Kiwi and Tuatara viewing in Northland. Come and learn all about these wonderful animals and why they are so unique as they forage for food in front of you in the Kiwi House. Explore the various displays in the Whangarei Museum, including beautiful taonga Maori, early European settler history and natural history. See Whangarei’s own remains of the now extinct Moa.
Then you can stretch your legs with a walk around the Park. Visit the historic 1886 Clarke Homestead, the original home on the Park, and the wonderfully unique octagonal Oruaiti Chapel and other heritage buildings. There are several vintage restoration clubs here at Kiwi North and if they welcome visitors when their members are there.
We do not have a café at this time but there are 2 excellent ones close by. Your ticket is for the whole day and you are welcome to leave for lunch and return. Kiwi feeding followed by a talk by the keeper is 3 times daily, 11am, 1pm and 3pm. Please NO flashes on cameras during Kiwi viewing.
You need to allow at least an hour, preferably more, for your visit.
