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.

Many, many birds

This attraction only has a relatively small area, but there are plenty of birds to see. They know that people = food, too, so they're not shy about coming up close, either... read more

We really enjoyed bird world. Have lots of birds including cassowary and macaws. The birds will eat anything shiny. Diamonds, earrings and even (happened to us) the tiny kangaroo on the belt of a broad brim hat. Buy the bird feed its good fun. We had lots of different birds land on us but be careful one of the macaws... More

Maybe it was just a bad day but the birds were not keen to take any notice of us or others around us. No interaction by staff to try and help the experience. Disappointed.

I was here today and it was a beautiful place to walk around with the kids before lunch. I thoroughly enjoyed my day at all the wildlife parks.

Birdworld Kuranda is a lovely place to visit if you love being amongst beautiful tropical birds 😎 it isn't a large place but there are lots of beautiful birds flying around and landing near you. A great place to visit and spend as much time as you like 👍 #birldworld Kuranda #exploreTNQ @thetourismteacher #showmethewrld

Fantastic time feeding the birds and having the close encounters whilst they land on your hands, head and shoulders for feeding. Great photo opportunities. So many birds with remarkable colours.

This was my 2nd visit in 7 years and sadly was a waste of money. Had so much fun interacting with the many birds last time but not on this visit - Tue 4 August. The staff had painted most of the fence top with a very strong smelling paint or stain, and she did warn us about it -... More

Last year we had gone to the butterfly house, so this year it was the turn of the birds. In my opinion the butterflies are a much better bet, more to see and good value. However, the children loved feeding the birds, though the younger one did get bitten quite badly by a large Macaw and the older one lost... More

They warn you about what not to wear before you enter and heed the advice. I wore my hat and immediately a bird landed on it and tore the button on top off. The same bird went after the zippers on our backpacks. Only one bird gave us trouble though. There is a good variety of birds to look at... More

This attraction only has a relatively small area, but there are plenty of birds to see. They know that people = food, too, so they're not shy about coming up close, either (sometimes too close - staff warned that some of the birds are very curious about shiny things, which can lead to them taking stuff from people, like jewellery).

Fun to interact with the birds. Many are very friendly and will come very close. Some are even more friendly and will sit on shoulders or hands. Beware some will steal anything shiny :) the attraction could do with an update but staff are friendly and helpful and the birds are happy to pose for photos. Native and exotic species,... More
