Awesome little family run business. The owner is bird passionate and extremely friendly and accommodating. Let's you hold the birds at the start, even the children and is a real highlight. You can also feed the birds as you go around the enclosures.

The Avery's are packed with birds. Some large ones you can walk through. Some of the birds talk. I think its good value on the entry price, but it should include the cup of bird seed instead of charging extra for it. Besides that it will keep the kids occupied for a good 2hrs. Our advice, pack a picnic lunch,... More

Our visit started with meeting a bunch of beautiful parrots and learning about them, while they hopped onto our hands and shoulders. And my head, actually, but maybe that's because it was a bit of a nest that day! The staff are very warm, welcoming and friendly, as well as knowledgeable. This was a special and memorable outing for our... More

I went here with my partner and we both loved it. The aviary is small but you get to handfeed and hold the birds. It's a short trip but a fun one! Kids will love it.

Visited with both an infant and a teenager and definitely something for everyone to enjoy. Very helpful and friendly staff who introduce you to some of the tame birds which you can also get to hold and stroke. Worth spending a couple of hours on a sunny day

Had a great time, the birds are real characters. They talk away to you and love attention. The cockatiels are a real hoot, they get on your shoulders and arms and want to be fussed and scratched. The staff are helpful and informative. Not a huge area but would recommend to everyone, not to be missed.
