Fodor's Review

Next to Rainbow Springs Nature Reserve this conservation center receives kiwi eggs, then hatches and rears these endangered birds before returning them to the wild. From September to April you'll see eggs or baby chicks, which have an extremely high cute factor. You'll get access by paying for Rainbow Springs which is a trout hatchery.
