The moment you step into this aviary, your senses are bombarded by sounds, sights and scents.
Welcoming you are flocks of colourful birds against the backdrop of an Australian outback landscape dotted with eucalyptus trees, cave paintings on rock walls and giant termite mounds.
Early explorers hailed Australia as the ‘land of parrots’. There are more parrot species in New South Wales alone than in Asia and Africa combined! Our parrots come in a riot of colours, filling the air with joyous whistles and squawks.
Watch for the fluffed-up displays of the red-tailed black cockatoo and the flamboyant hairdo of the Major Mitchell’s cockatoo.
As you stroll the elevated walkways, you simply cannot miss the begging antics of the magpie goose. Don’t forget to search the shadows for the funky but shy crested pigeon.
Gaze skywards to admire the breath-taking flight of our Aussie beauties. No visit is complete without observing our birds squabbling over a shared meal in the many scattered feeders.
