The drive from Akaroa where ships dock, through Banks Peninsula to Christchurch is a long but interesting drive where you see much of the countryside. Christchurch is a magnificent city. Willowbank Wildlife Reserve is a family owned and operated place where animals are displayed

Response from Canterburyleisure, Digital Marketing Manager at Akaroa Shore Excursion: Banks Peninsula, Christchurch City Tour and Willowbank Wildlife Reserve
Responded 6 Feb 2019
Thank you for the positive review and I'm happy you enjoyed your day in Christchurch and Willowbank. Your observations regarding Willowbank is correct - it is not really a zoo but more a wildlife reserve that promotes conservation and showcases our unique ecosystem and endangered animals. They also participate in animal rescues and breeding programs and work closely with many New Zealand conservation organizations. The variety of New Zealand animals on display, both native and introduced, is a real highlight for many people who book this excursion as they may never see these animals again. Thanks again for a great review and we hope you get to visit NZ again some time in the future.
