Description: Home to the largest single collection of free flying birds in Australia...
Home to the largest single collection of free flying birds in Australia (some 500 of them!), Birdworld Kuranda in the Australian highlands of the Atherton Tablelands displays no less than 75 species of the most spectacular birds from all corners of the planet - as well as from the earth’s fast diminishing rainforests.Visitors are free to wander through the lush, tropically landscaped bird sanctuary to observe the birds in their own specific - yet natural - habitats. Two lakes connected by a tumbling waterfall for example are home to waterbirds such as stilts, herons and Australia’s own unique Black Swan. In Birdworld's rainforest canopy overhead, blue, gold and scarlet Macaws dazzle with colourful brilliance as they soar above the tree tops. One outstanding Birdworld denizen not to be missed is that rare avian giant, the Cassowary - an Australian bird now officially enlisted as endangered.Designed to "create a centre where birds would be showcased in their natural environment without the barriers of cages coming between them and their admiring public", Birdworld Kuranda is a photographer's paradise. (And without those barriers, visitors often find a feathered friend nestling on their shoulder - a golden photo opportunity!) Birdworld Kuranda can provide guided tours for all group bookings.

Birdworld has some amazing species and it is worth your while if you love birds. The space is fairly small so you can walk around a few times to get different views of these magnificent creatures.

This is a nice addition to your trip to the markets with a short walk through an aviary where you can see a variety of birds from around the world. You can even buy bird food and feed the parrots if you want. It isn't very big so don't plan on spending much time there but it is nice.

If you want to see many colourful birds in a short space of time, go. Otherwise, give it a miss. It's smaller than you think.

A good place to see rescued parrots on the fly. They have the usual Aussie birds plus a Cassawary. I'd buy a package with the butterflies.

The staff here are very helpful and knowledgeable and although the enclosure does create an artificial environment, it is still pleasing to see birds in a free flying situation. This is not a large place, but a visit could take an hour if you just sit and watch the birds whether they are pecking around your feet, watching you from... More

Part of what we have come to expect in this part of the world is the smiling and helpful reception and ticketing personal. This always leaves one with excitement and anticipation to see what is on display in their attraction. And no it didn't disappoint. Plenty of colour on display and room to move, along with patience great photos to... More

We loved our experience here because we booked it as a package - part of the Kuranda Wildlife Experience - when we booked our Skyrail tickets. This was very economical and all three exhibits together was awesome. The best part is that everything was so interactive. The 3 exhibits you get are the Koala Gardens, the Butterfly Garden, and Kuranda... More

Beautiful setting for some cheeky birds. Warning! Watch out for those pesky birds, they will remove jewelry from you or destroy a cap as they did my partners.
