Tips from locals
A cross between a zoo, conservation reserve and farmyard petting zoo Willowbank is a great place for the whole family. You can have a sitdown meal, purchase snacks or on weekends buy icecreams and enjoy pony rides amongst all the sights.
Willowbank is a local zoo/petting zoo. Its not the cheapest place to go (If you are around for longer its definitely worth to buy a year pass) but an awesome experience. You can feed and pet lots of animals and even see a Kiwi bird in real life! If you are lucky you may also be around for a Haka…
A must visit especially for families while in Christchurch. Heaps of NZ native animals and way more!
