Overview

Details

At Pukaha Mount Bruce we have plenty of activities and attractions for our visitors. Your entry fee covers six daily talks and feeds as well as entry to the nocturnal house where you will see Manukura, the worlds only white kiwi in captivity. Also in the nocturnal house is Turua, another North Island Brown Kiwi.

Pukaha Mount Bruce was the first place in New Zealand to use captive breeding as a conservation method. Today it is internationally recognised for its breeding success and subsequent re-introduction of endangered species back into their native areas.

We have aviaries which are inhabited by endangered New Zealand birds which are being bred for release to increase their populations. We have juvenile and adult tuatara and a stream full of longfin eels which we feed daily. Come and learn about their long, long journey to breed. There is an interactive gallery on site - make sure you go into our Rata Tree and see how many native species you can find with the help of the torches.

We have a 2 hour loop bushwalk as well as our aviary walk which can take either all day or 40 minutes depending on how long you wish to stay looking at each of the species of birds. We have regenerated New Zealand bush right off State Highway 2 with ample free carparks.
