  • I absolutely love this place 😁 Arrived here randomly on Boxing Day 2017 and had the best day out with my little nephew. So when coming back to visit nephew number two it was the only must visit on my to do list. Top tip: visit on a cool drizzly day! It's a lot more comfortable and the birds are frankly hyper 😂 The interactive experience is amazing, all the staff are lovely and friendly and really knowledgeable. And all the birds are beautiful, funny and have so much character. Highly recommended.
  • This is an amazing place. It’s very beautiful and great for just unwinding from a busy city. As well as the bird sanctuary, you can see how much the birds love the team. It’s a great way to learn about different birds and also be able to play with them. None of the birds are forced to come to you, they do as they please 😁 if they like you , they will be all over you. Definitely a great way to spend a weekend , especially if you have kids
  • After noticing an advertisement on TV for the Maleny Botanic Gardens and Bird World, we decided to take a trip to explore what Maleny had to offer. We were not disappointed. We walked through the beautiful gardens for an hour, and then had a guided tour of the Bird World aviary. This was an hour of delightful entertainment with birds landing on various people, as well as an educational experience. All the staff were very pleasant and helpful, and did their best to make our experience a very memorable one. We are visiting here from Canada and we would highly recommend a visit to this amazing attraction in Maleny.
  • Lived on the Coast my entire life and have only just heard about this place, so had to check it out! Took the family and absolutely loved the Aviary tour! The birds are beautiful and have so much character and charisma! Would highly recommend to anyone with kids and loves birds! The grounds are also amazing and well worth the visit, with my only complaint being running out of time to explore.
  • What a lovely place. The aviary is home to rescued, unwanted and abandoned birds.. These birds have been imprinted by humans in their former lives so cannot live in the wild The large aviary allows them to socialize with other birds and get the human attention they want, but in their terms. If a bird wants to land on you it will. If it wants it’s own space off it flies and is left alone. A wonderful experience where you can interact with these amazing birds guided by clearly passionate, dedicated and caring tour guides. The aviaries are surrounded by beautiful gardens, which get better every time we visit. We really recommend the aviary and gardens and encourage everyone to support this great place of refuge for these amazing birds. Well done to everyone at the facility and keep up the good work.
