  • Wandered through this amazing bird sanctuary. Had a two parrots on my shoulder for the entire walk. They loved chewing on my beard (that did need a trim). Built into the natural rainforest, this is a ...  more »
  • At the moment is a small garden around the minutes at the dome-shaped building, with bird-lovers spread knees. Feeding large parrots and parakeets fly perch on the head and arms, had food at people. Gentle easy-to-take photos too ^ _ ^ is bit and don't get any food because the sharp beak, but continental put antiseptic and plasters at the reception desk.

  • The large enclosure has MANY beautiful tropical birds and they will come to be fed or sit on your shoulder. Other larger or unusual birds are behind a fence. Bird food is available for free. 
  • Absolutely worth the price of admission. An amazing selection of native birds, all healthy and happy. Don't try to touch them though, parrots are temperamental and will bite if they feel like it. Let the birds come to you instead... or better yet, just look don't touch :)
  • I thought this place gonna be bigger but it was a good experience. Feeding those beautiful birds which fly around you freely is exciting. Don't touch the birds as they can hurt you. They'll come towards you if they're hungry :)
  • What an experience! Great way to get up close and feed birds. Reasonably priced at $18, the Macaw is unreal and very intelligent. Only thing I would have liked to see was staff inside the Avery protecting the birds from people, there is always one of them in crowd who does the wrong thing.
  • If you don't go here you will miss out on something very special indeed, it's cheap to get in, there are hundreds of magnificent birds, they will come up close, very close, landing on your arm or shoulder, but there are gentle so many beautiful colours & it's one of the places that you will be able to see the Cassowary up close & safely. Great Place, Lovely people
  • Enjoyed this place. Not as many birds and you think though. Takes about 2 mins to do a lap but free to stay as long as you want there with the birds. Worth it for the price. Went during peak season also so birds are probably pretty well fed.
