Back in 1929, Rainbow Springs consisted mostly of swampland – there were no trout pools and very little in the way of trees or ferns.

Today, our 22 acres of native trees and bush is home to some of New Zealand’s most iconic reptile and bird species, including the country’s largest and most successful kiwi conservation centre, Kiwi Encounter.

When founder Ted Bruce bought the land in 1929 he envisaged something quite different for the site, which at the time was a run-down dairy farm. He and his team spent hours, often in cold, muddy conditions, digging out a hole for what is now the Rainbow Pool. They also planted hundreds of trees and ferns, before opening the park to the public in 1932.

Like the flora and fauna within it, Rainbow Springs continues to evolve and develop with the times. The park now offers lots of entertainment for families including, the Big Splash ride, children’s playgrounds, a Bird Show, and new Playscapes and Water Play areas!
