  • A very nice place for a visit, but not to good for food extremely limited, good for picnics, staff are friendly and helpful. Plenty of parking.  more »
  • This place has come a long way since it first opened, the gardens have really flourished and Bird World has become quite the experience! The guides are very knowledgeable and can answer all your quest...  more »
  • The bird enclosure was good but we kept getting told off for taking our time to look around. I felt we were rushed through the enclosure. I understand that they had other groups booked but I feel like...  more »

  • Better than the Zoo! The bird sanctuary was incredible, So many friends who had been to the Mary C-C had no idea the garden down the road existed! Definitely an experience like no other. If you love birds then you will love this place. With many of the birds being rescued the place is filled with love and passion! The staff are friendly and have a heart for what they do. The owner (who I believe is the owner) placed the birds on us and shared stories about each one. The garden was beautiful. I was looking out for fish but couldn’t see any. Looks like a love spot for some Catfish. Would definitely comeback next time I’m in Brisbane. Worth the drive. On par with Australia Zoo (if you love birds)
  • Dec 2018 Good place to visit once if you are local resident but not worth for international tourist. It has nice garden and allows people to hire buggy car which was fun to drive around. The tiny little bird sanctuary (enclosure) was not worth time and money for what you see inside (plenty of parrots). I won't recommend to international tourist but worth a visit for local to have picnic in garden. Don't buy bird enclosure tickets (very expensive) unless you are die hard fan of parrots!
  • Good fun. Hilly site with nice gardens and great views. (Rent a buggy if you are mobility challenged.) Don’t miss the aviaries. There are over 900 parrots flying around, mostly rescue birds. They are very friendly and will land on you. Great photo opportunity.
  • Such a beautiful place with so many beautiful birds. I could not believe that 90% of the birds are surrendered 😢 They are so fortunate to have such a wonderful home, but highlights how many who purchase large birds without fully realising the responsibility that comes with owning them. So many beautiful birds I would love to have brought home with me, including one particular little African Grey girl - so in love 😍 Amy was a fantastic guide, a real natural. Thank you for turning my day from an unhappy start to filling my love tanks by the time I left. I will be back!
  • What a marvelous place. We thoroughly enjoyed The Aviary tour and the birds landed on us. Make sure not to wear any clothing that is very special to you as they can be a little bit cheeky and especially have a liking for buttons, zips and threads. They even took the lid off my drink bottle. The gardens are superb and it is recommended to bring food for a picnic as there are tables with beautiful views.
