There is a bit of everything here and with Camp Saver Motorhome parking. Its called Mill Creek Animal and Bird Encounters and is about 3k’s off the main road just south of Whitianga.

Unfortunately they had just had a big rain event and been flooded so the ride on train wasn’t running but all the animals and birds were there.
There is a walk in Aviary where you can go in amongst the Lorikeets which is neat and they’re super friendly as well.
There are over 400 birds here with Macaws and Cockatoos along with many farm animals all spread out. Everywhere you look there are peacocks roaming around and down by the Motorhome parking, there are Pigs, Goats, small horses, big horses Donkeys, you name it, its there. You can also get a coffee at the station cafe.

As I arrived I was greeted by a large duck who chased me to the Farm Animal area 🙂
The nice flat parks are generous in size, about 8 metres square with small panels to separate each park. The showers and toilets look brand new as well so a great spot to stay.
Even though it was pretty cold and miserable, there were plenty of families there enjoying the park. Well worth a visit if you’re in the area and great for the kids.
