Ollie the Tuatara

We stayed a 2 minute walk from the Kiwi Birdlife Park in Queenstown. Its right next to the Gondola. They do a package deal that we took advantage of, oh yeah.

We almost gave the Kiwi park a miss but our Hotel owner recommended it. It was totally worth it. We got to hang out in a cage with two Keas and saw a few kiwi's. One kiwi was only an arms length away digging through leaves.

We stuck around for the 3pm Conservation show. The highlight of this, for me, was meeting Ollie the Tuatara. He was a juvenile, so still pretty active despite the cold. They also have a possum that runs around and a few birds that fly through the audience. It was pretty cool and well worth it.



Here's the website for the park: http://www.kiwibird.co.nz/ Its a must visit when in Queenstown.
