I don't like the Western coast at all, they are even said to have Possums for barbecue! But if you want to watch Kiwis in the wild Okarito is the best place, here professionals will guide you into the rain forest. In addition there's a large lagoon you can paddle across in a small boat to watch birds. Generally birds, lots of them, one prettier than the other. Besides that ... nothing.
