  • Nice place to relax and take the kids. The bird tour is great. Kids loved it. Awesome opportunity to take nice bird photos as well. They fly around and land on your shoulders. Be careful with the kids roaming around though. We walked passed a decent size red belly black snake along the path (couple of feet away). Reported it to the office and they said to just leave it as it is their resident snake.
  • Gardens and landscaping are beautiful but the tour of the aviaries is priceless. Large birds fly down and sit on your shoulders while you walk through. This is an experience not to be missed. Staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Loved it!!!
  • Awesome gardens and bird sanctuary. A little on the pricey side so I would recommend making a day of it. Go early, have lunch in the garden, do the bird tour, chill out more in the garden. Won't disappoint anyone except Mr Wallet.
  • The gardens are spectacular. The views are beautiful. And the birds are delightful. The golf buggies were also lots of fun.
  • Beautiful! The birds were amazing the keepers were friendly and were okay with requests to go back and play with a Macaw. I thought it was worth every cent when you think about the amount of birds they have to maintain and upkeep of scenery. Someone stated the aviary was not worth it because it looked boring but he never even went inside! It is worth it the birds just fly all over you, They give you information about them, their names, species and backstory. An amazing experience to talk about time and time again.
