Get up close and personal with approximately 300 colorful birds at The Parrot Place, a zoo and breeding center. Stroll through the lush subtropical gardens as brightly plumed parrots frolic around you, or enter the large walk-in aviaries where the friendly birds will happily perch on an arm or a head. The center's knowledgeable hosts will tell you all about their many varieties and species from around the world, including the native New Zealand kākāriki. A large play area keeps children entertained while you relax in the picnic area, perhaps with an ice cream from the onsite shop.

  • We started from Oakland, though it was a long drive, but it was worth it. Ticket prices are not high, and can see a lot of parrots, can buy fodder feed parrot, buy small copy can, the weight is very sufficient. The most important thing is that there are many opportunities to close the parrot, the staff will help let the parrot stand on your shoulders, these parrots are very close to people, will take the initiative to close to you, one will also dance on your shoulders. If you choose to let the parrot stand on you, they may be able to discharge feces to you, this can not be avoided to be psychologically prepared.

  • We arrived 30 minutes before closing but were the only ones there. Got to hold four different parrots. Our daughter loved trying to figure out which birds talked. Nice kids stop at the end of our day.  more »

  • Really enjoyed our visit. Lots of interaction with the parrots. Found the whole experience very relaxing. Well worth a visit.
  • Its a great place to take the children to. You can also buy bird seed and a range of toys for your bird at home. The staff is friendly and helpful.
  • Lovely atmosphere. Children loved it as the staff were friendly. Interaction with the parrots were good and signage clear and concise. Only thing is that there is not much parking.
  • Very well done, all the birds are so well cared for. Staff are lovely and friendly. Easy to walk around. Beautiful coloured birds, some like to walk all over you, which is great too. But watch out for your earrings! Most enjoyable all round!🖒🖒
