Owlcatraz Park- Overview

Owlcatraz is a wildlife park that is situated in the Southwest region of Palmerston North. This place is deemed a heaven for bird-watchers and sight-seers; it is home to wonderful creatures and is widely acclaimed for housing several endangered bird species like the North Island’s Weka; the picture-perfect Lake Owlsmere; and the magnificent “glow worm” cave complex-the Wairuru Caves. Though, children of 8 years or below are restricted to enter the Wairuru caves, they can still have their fair share of the fun on the miniature train.
