National Kiwi Centre - Hokitika
The National Kiwi Centre is situated in the heart of Hokitika in an undercover facility that provides a guaranteed viewing of kiwi in our nocturnal house that replicates their natural environment. During your visit you can take part in feeding the giant eels (10am, 12 noon and 3pm daily). The eels are approximately 85 to 100 years old. You can view the tuatara then wander through to see whitebait in various stages of their life and see other west coast creatures of the night.
