Stuff reveals that one of the best places to see kiwi in the wild is actually the last place you’d think: Auckland. Tāwharanui Regional Park is a peninsula that juts out towards Kawau Island just over an hour from central Auckland. The predator-free sanctuary is home to an astonishing array of birdlife, including endangered kaka that pop over from Little Barrier Island. But what most come here at night to see is the thriving population of North Island brown kiwi.
