  • Visited two years ago and the place was full of birds flying freely and very friendly. Bitterly disappointed this time round. Lots of closed off areas. Lots of maintenance required. Looking sad and unloved. Only very few birds left.
  • Great selection of birds. Some that are very hard to see in the wild and also very lovely people
  • its a Must to SEE ! the best birds paradise ever. you have not see anything like this :) go a visit
  • The birds were GORGEOUS!! The owners and volunteers were very friendly and knowledgeable. It's great to see so many birds in a free flight cage, well fed and their surrounds so clean. The very rare Bleeding Heart Pigeon was amazing, I've never seen one before. Loved all the beautifully coloured parrots, especially the Macaws. If you are a passing Grey Nomad or a young family I highly suggest visiting, you will not be disappointed.
  • Amazing !! Worth the 4 hour drive :) 😲😬😋
