Orana Wildlife Park
Set on 80 hectares of land within the McLeans Island recreational area, 18 kilometres or about 30 minutes drive from Christchurch's Cathedral Square, Orana Park has been designed with the emphasis on natural settings for the animals. Here you can view them close-up, with few fences, wire or cages.
Because of the importance the Wildlife Trust attaches to 'hands-on' education, there is a farm area which gives visitors the opportunity to touch a variety of domestic animals. Feeding giraffes, rhinoceros, lions and other animals allows visitors to experience the animals in a way offered by few other animal parks
