Otorohanga Kiwi House is a good place to go that is not too far from the city if you really want to see kiwis. They have a number of options for viewing including guided or self-guided tours. You can also observe the feeding times. They guarantee that you will see a kiwi and there are also tuatara and other native species of birds. A real New Zealand experience is to feed the eels, which are sacred to Maori.
They are open every day except Christmas Day.
