Rainbow Springs Nature Park

Just outside the city centre of Rotorua, you can find Rainbow Springs Nature Park which has an excellent display of flora and fauna found throughout the North Island of New Zealand. Here, Christy and I saw some of the most interesting kinds of birds, rainbow trout (who come and go into the nature park from the nearby river), and silver ferns. Being an animal lover, this was a fun excursion - especially with the opportunity to see some kiwi birds inside the nocturnal house. Kiwi birds are so odd-looking, but fascinating!  As you are unlikely to see a kiwi bird in the wild, seeing them in a place such as Rainbow Springs is a great alternative!

Rainbow Trout

This bird was very jumpy, only by pure luck did I manage to catch a photo. Very pretty!
