Orana Wildlife Park

Set in 80 hectares of park-like grounds, Orana Wildlife Park is New Zealand's only open-range zoo. Scheduled animal feeds occur throughout the day and these unique encounters get visitors up close to endangered animals at set times: hand-feed giraffes, see tigers search for food, meet massive rhinoceros in a 'face-to-face' encounter and stroll through native bird aviaries to see a range of NZ forest birds and the kea, the world's only mountain parrot.

Little River Cycle Trail

The Rail Trail takes you through a changing landscape that has seen a thousand years of human history. It passes through rural areas and settlements on the Canterbury Plains, skirts past the massive flanks of the ancient volcanoes which make up the Banks Peninsula, and hugs the shoreline of a vast lagoon, Te Waihora/Lake Ellesmere, and its smaller twin, Te Roto o Wairewa/Lake Forsyth. The lakes and associated rivers and wetlands are rich in wildlife and natural vegetation.
