The West Coast Wildlife Centre is an all weather visitor attraction located in Franz Josef.

The Centre is the sole provider of the BNZ Operation Nest Egg TM incubation and captive rearing programme for the Rowi and Haast tokoeka, New Zealand's rarest kiwi.

The forest and bush around the West Coast is dense and virtually completely untouched and the undergrowth is home to the incredible wildlife - much of which is rarely seen as it is often active at night.

The superb quality nature films and interactives at the West Coast Wildlife Centre bring you the very special opportunity to view juvenile Rowi - our rarest kiwi - in a natural walk through Nocturnal House setting with this fabulous wildlife New Zealand tour.

The West Coast Wildlife Centre is of the largest Kiwi Captive Rearing facilities in New Zealand and since opening in 2010 has successfully raised and released over 200 Kiwi chicks.

The Centre also brings to life the yarns and tales of the people of the West Coast, who mined, hunted, struggled and lived in this breathtaking but harsh environment.

All entry tickets contribute to Kiwi conservation and the fight for kiwi survival.
