This is great way to getup and close with birds and great for young children. It would be good if more seating was available for those that wish to sit and watch the bird life. Staff were friendly and helpful

Well worth 30-45 minutes out of your day. Lots of beautiful, friendly parrots and other birds. You get given feed for the birds and they are quite happy to gently feed from you. Super friendly owners/staff.
