My 3 children (5,11&12) loved their visit to the bird park. Feeding the lorikeets was definitely a highlight and also the bird show. They loved running around exploring and seeing all the different cages and birds and we enjoyed the toasted sandwiches from the shop.

Actually I did recommend the bird park by mentioning it was well worth visiting. It is beautifully situated, has wide variety of birds. They also rehabilitate birds there and offer some educational shows daily.
