National Kiwi Hatchery reopens at Agrodome

 The National Kiwi Hatchery has reopened to the public at its new Rotorua Agrodome location.

The new venue promises an improved visitor experience, dedicated access for trade bookings and tour groups, and shuttle services to the hatchery from Agrodome.

All hatchery ticket proceeds go to the kiwi hatching programme.

“It’s with great pride we continue to undertake this important mahi and that we can now put it on a larger stage for domestic and international manuhiri (visitors) to see, learn and take part in,” said National Kiwi Hatchery manager Emma Bean.

The hatchery and Agrodome are owned by Ngāi Tahu Tourism. The hatchery was previously at Rotorua’s Rainbow Springs Nature Park.
