Te Mata Peak Wildlife Park

Where families enjoy time together on the slopes of Te Mata Peak, Havelock North, NZ

About Us

We aquired this wonderful property in 2014 in a huge state of neglect after the elderly owner was unable to take proper care of the large acreage.

After determining that the only way to clean the property up was hard graft and goats, we and the goats got stuck in.

Two years on and our menagerie has grown and our weeds and wilding pines have deminished leaving us with a delightful property swarming with relaxed and happy animals and birds. The goats have multiplied, the pheasants and quail chicks have hatched and native tui, kereru and bellbird abound, often flying in to have a bath in the birdbath on our deck.

We considered many options for our unique property, so close to the village of Havelock North and on the road to popular Te Mata Peak, the 400 metre local icon that is home to beatiful walks and biking trails. Eventually we decided that our goal to turn the property into at beautiful wilderness wildlife area would fit well with the recreational activities of both NZ families and overseas visitors, giving everyone the opportunity to visit up close with birds and animals in their natural environment and to wander through the bush and experience the environment.

Development is on going!

Currently we welcome self contained motor homes to a lovely shady site  that is frequented by a small herd of friendly goats, pheasants, quail, tui, bellbirds and kereru. Access is via double gates from the sealed Te Mata Peak Road. Please contact us for further information.
