About This Tauranga Tour
The nature alone is worth a visit to Rainbow Springs. Lush vegetation, towering Rotorua redwoods, crystalline ponds and streams, and cascading waterfalls. At this beautiful nature reserve, learning is doled out in bundles of fun, much of it interactive.
General admission is your ticket to a day of amazing sights, sounds, and attractions – you can come back that night for more. Get lost in the peace and pure wonder of nature, then come to the auditorium for the squawks and surprises of the exotic bird show. See New Zealand's flightless natural bird, and take a boat journey that ends with a big splash. It's all included.
Depending on which day you come, you can have a close encounter with a variety of amazing wild life. You may find yourself up close and personal with a water dragon, holding a blue-tongue lizard, watch an eel get fed, or personally feed trout.
Of course you'll find all kinds of exotic birds, like the bush parrot kaka and Antipodes Island parakeet. And you'll see not-so-exotic piglets, calves, and lambs. Even a llama!
It's an exciting, jam-packed day that goes on into the night.
The living fossil of New Zealand
One of the coolest and rarest animals you'll see at Rainbow Springs is the tuatara. Found only in New Zealand, these lizard-like reptiles have spiny scales down their backs and tails that can grow nearly three feet long. Their most curious body part is a third eye on the top of the head that may help them judge the time of day and the season. The tuatara's closest relatives are an extinct group of reptiles from the dinosaur era, making this strange creature a unique living fossil.
Please make your way to 192 Fairy Springs Rd, Fairy Springs, Rotorua to begin your adventure.
