Willowbank Wildlife Reserve has lots of animals that you can hand feed with a focus on native bird life and it is best known for its excellent kiwi tours. Unlike other kiwi houses that have glassed-in enclosures, Willowbank allows you to see the kiwi without any glass for a more natural look at this unique and rare bird.
