Kiwi on Rotoroa Island

  • Nature & Wildlife

There about 25 North Island Brown Kiwi living on Rotoroa Island. These important birds are nocturnal so your best chance of seeing or hearing a kiwi is at night time.

During September - March breeding season, we invite public to our kiwi releases. This is a really special occasion and often we get just a week's notice so keep on eye on our Facebook page

Our rangers can advise you which track to take to increase your chances of spotting New Zealand's favourite bird.
