This is a pleasure enjoyed by all!

Bird feeding area open daily from 11:00am - 3:00pm

When you are here, head to the Giftshop to purchase your ticket for access to the bird feeding area.
Tickets cost $4.00 per tray, which are suitable for up to 2 people.

Head out to where the Parrots are, and these beautifuly coloured King and Rosella Parrots will land on you hand, arm or even on your head.

Not only are there Parrots, but Bush Turkeys, and other small Birds.

It is great fun for everybody!


In the 1930?s, Bernard O?Reilly rehabilitated an injured Crimson Rosella. When it was better, he released the Bird, only to find it returned daily for supplementary feeding. As Bird's do, they then invite all their friends, and since then, have stayed in these surrounds.

Check the website for Birds you may see here.

      Lots and lots of colourful birds in Australia. I miss not seeing birds like this in Europe.
