* While all endeavours are made to have a kiwi chick to show at the kiwi talks this is not guaranteed as occasionally our volunteers are unable to catch a chick in time.

 

Getting to the kiwi crèche

The kiwi crèche is situated at Lake Opouahi Scenic Reserve, 9km inland from Tutira on the Napier to Wairoa highway (SH2), about 1 hour's drive from Napier.
