Plan to spend at least four hours visiting this attraction - there is that much to see. Not only are there parrots of every kind, but exotic animals as well. The shows are interesting and kids will love it. There is also a petting zoo for the little ones.

Parrots And Flamingos are awesome! Shows were okay, the birds show was the best, quite informational. A few other cool apes, monkeys and Kangaroos. Would be a real treat for younger kids.

It was easily accessible and small so you don't have to spend an entire day there. Many interesting animals and the shows were good too.

For the money, I expected to see more. My family and I drove over an hr. to visit this place, and just like the Seaquarium, we spent less than an hr. there because there wasn't barely any animals to see. Very dissapointing.

Fun for families and those interested in tropical birds, plants, and animals (especially parrots). Nicely organized, friendly staff, and enjoyable nature shows. Hard to justify the approx. $35 per person admission though (plus $8 to park there!).

Jungle Island was lovely. They had a lovely selection of animals which were very well looked after. The place itself was immaculate. Food offering was basic and uninviting. The bird show was hillarious but the big cat show was rubbish!! well recommended for a day out
