What you will visit:

Willowbank Nature Reserve
Native wildlife and Maori culture are combined at this themed wildlife park, which showcases the country's natural and cultural heritage. Here, you'll come face to face with the New Zealand's Big 5, which are the kiwi, the kea, the ancient tuatara, the kaka bush parrot, and the very rare takahe. Willowbank also shares the experiences of New Zealand's cultural heritage. Explore a replica Maori village and engage in a challenge with a Maori warrior, watch a Ko Tane Maori cultural performance and marvel at a powerful performance as the Maori warriors reenact their famous battle dance, the "haka."

What you will see along the way:

The Willowbank Wildlife Reserve is an approximately 30-minute drive from the city center of Christchurch. A wonderful mix of both old and new, Christchurch is situated around the River Avon. Its beautiful Gothic architecture and blooming gardens were hit hard by the devastating 2011 earthquake, but rising like a phoenix, Christchurch today is revitalized and growing.

A light lunch in the on-site restaurant can be purchased at your own expense.
