At first we didn't find it and drove up to a kind of container backpackers. The landlord told us that Kiwi 360 had closed down its business for good: January 31, 2017

Our visit to this Kiwi farm was fascinating! The owner was so knowledgeable about every aspect of the growing and harvesting process. The shop/café was a nice stop also. Got to sample scones with kiwi jam. Worth the time.

Enjoyed the tour of the vineyards, the relaxing walk and the shop / cafe ... worth a stop over to break up a long drive of if you are in the BOP. Plenty of nice photo ops too

Permanently closed. Please take off from the attractions. We went with a group recently and there is a sign to suggest that attraction is closed.

We (husband & wife) visited Kiwi 360 whilst stopping-over in the area on a 3-week trip around NZ. It was a little disappointing for the money. We were surprised when the kiwi-fruit 'train' returned to drop-off at the shop that it was so short a tour. It was nice to be shown how the kiwi-fruit grow & have explanation, but... More

There is a sign outside that says that the tourist attraction is permanently out of business and that it is now a construction site. You can still take a pic with the giant kiwi so better than nothing I suppose.

We reached there on 15 June 2016, Wednesday and saw the gate was closed. I checked with the motel next door and was told that they have closed down recently and waiting to be relocated. Very disappointed.

Kiwi 360 is a must stop. Awesome family run business and real genuine kiwi hospitality. A great place to learn about the kiwifruit industry and treat the taste buds to a kiwifruit ice cream.

Interesting tour of the fruits grown there, in particular the kiwifruit travelling in kiwifruit carts with an interesting guide. Follow this up with a kiwifrruit parfait . There is a great selection in the cafe with inside or outside seating. A vast selection of gifts/souvenirs in the shop. Something for everyone. Climb the kiwifruit too.
