beautiful birds. feeding the birds and being able to hold some of them, also being able to walk into the aviaries so the birds flew around you made it a great interactive experience for the children

There are a number of options for all kids with parrots sitting on shoulders, a walk through aviary and a great range of parrots and birds. Definitely grab the feed to engage with birds.

We visited with 2 children (3 and 6) and they loved it, the opportunity to hold them was a real hit. The play area at the back was an ok break from the birds.
