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. « less

There are many birds with beautiful plumage both here and overseas. This bird has a collection of Australian and overseas birds, including the magnificent south American macaws with their vibrant blue and yellow plumage. The local parrots and cockatoos are just as impressive, though. The birds are flying free and most people find themselves becoming a perch for a cheeky... More

I have been to bird parks before and saw a few birds from a distance or in cages, but at this place you are right in with them and they are all over you. As soon as you walk into the enclosure there are all sorts of birds around you, all looking for food and attention. The most amusing was... More

I had been to this attraction about 15 years ago, I enjoyed it. This visit was a waste of time lack of birds.

A lovely small business with lots of very overly friendly birds !? We were warned on entering to remove any small, shiney items as the birds were very good at removing them, I removed my earrings & sunglasses but we should have removed the button off the top of my sons baseball hat & the toggles on our backpacks........before the...

This is a great place to see birds. There's a wide variety of birds on display, and you can feed the parrots. The birds literally speak with you. Becareful with your belongings as the birds try to snatch things away from you.

This was the 3rd time we have returned to Birdworld. Again the experience of having these beautiful, exotic birds come and land on you and interact each with their own individual personality was a heart warming experience. Also looking at the happy expressions on the faces of the other visitors makes this a very pleasant experience. It is one of... More

That is high praise indeed. You must let us know when you are returning again and we'll look after you. We have more birds in quarantine at the moment so hopefully even more for you to see on your next visit. Warm regards, Angela More

I think I’ve finally discovered something cheekier than my children. The birds here are something else. If you want interactive fun then these guys are certainly it. This free-flight aviary has birds of every shape and size landing near you or ON you for a feed or just for some plain ol’ fun. Read More on my www.adventuremumma.com Blogpost (pics... More

Definitely spend the $3 and get some feed. The birds are SO used to people and it's such a rare treat to have them actually approach you to get the food. All the animals seemed healthy and well accustomed to people.

Small and a little underwhelming - not much information available and a very sad single cassowary trying to hide number some bushes. A bunch of gregarious parrots are the real heros but I found the place a little sad overall, packed with birds who look thoroughly sick of the bags of food everyone is offering them. If you've ever come... More
