To the north of Waitomo is Otorohanga, famous for its kiwi house and native bird park. Kiwi house is where kiwis are bred in captivity and has been around for a long time. This is a great opportunity to see a live Kiwi as you never get to see a kiwi in New Zealand because they live in the deep bush and only come out at night for four hours.
The kiwi bird is unlike other birds, its tiny eyes cannot see that well at night so they feel, smell and hear there way around.
