  • A surprising amount to see in such a small space. Birds appeared to be in good health. Great for little kids.  more »
  • The birds here were stunning. entry fee a little expensive for a small attraction - we went around twice in probably an hour, but very pretty. Would be a great rainy day stop.  more »
  • What a little find just outside the city. Able to get there on local bus and a 10 min walk from bus stop. Not very well signposted in the park but got there in the end. A very mini looking Eden Projec...  more »

  • Really amazing plants and birds! It is a single walking loop and it is, of course, extremely humid, but a really fun experience. There are amazing plants and flowers that are situated beautifully but the birds were mine and my daughter’s favorite part. They have different kinds of beautiful parrots and other birds that are really close to the paths and fly by you. Glad we went!
  • Absolutely wonderful! It was a nice addition to the visit to the Park! You may be fooled into thinking your stop here will be short, but you will want to go two maybe three times around the conservatory, like I did! And if you take the self guided tour like I did, you could be there for a couple hours. I wish the signs for the tour we're easier to find, but otherwise it was an awesome experience. Definitely recommend!
  • I was visiting Vancouver when Uncle Fester came into bloom. They had a great set up for viewing and even took the time to take photos for everyone with our own cameras!! Thank you so much for a wonderful experience. Your social media posts were up to date and you responded in a very timely manner on the wait times.
  • A small but beautiful conservatory packed with exotic plants, birds and butterflies. Very reasonably priced entrance fee. I came while the corpse flower was blooming so there was an insane lineup to get in, despite the extreme summer heat. The staff set up canopies, handed out bottled water, and even lent out umbrellas from their gift store to ensure people lining up in the sun didn't suffer heat stroke. I'm sure the cost for all those things was far more than the tiny entrance fee they charged. You could tell they just wanted to let as many people have a chance to see the flower as possible. Absolutely amazing staff! Definitely worth a drop by if you're visiting QE park.
  • Very interesting place to visit. A lot of exotic birds (Macaws, African grey, Cockatoos, etc). The conservatory area is not very big, it would only take you 10-15 minutes to go around it. I would say the entrance fee ($6-$7) is definitely worth it.
