A very compact place but it had beautiful gardens and we were immediately handed a parrot each who we fell in love with! We then went into the walk in menagerie where parrots were flying freely. A memorable morning. Nice shop also.

Great collection of exotic and rare birds and great fun to feed them. Watch out for them flying over you or sitting on your shoulder, you might get pooped on! Don't plan on spending a long time here unless you bring a picnic, it's just not that big.

It was a great place to visit and to walk through avairies and see the birds in their natural habitat flying around. We were also able to talk to one of the staff members about the parrots and to have them sit on our hands and eat the seed. Very relaxed place to visit worth the effort.

An excellent place with plenty of bright colourful parrots. The parrots fly down and sit on you and will eat the peanuts you give them. A wonderful experience. Wonderful parrots love their peanuts" (age 9) "Amazing parrots fluff up their feathers" (age 7)

We visited 19 February, and had a brilliant interactive experience. The hostess was very forth-coming with knowledge about the birds and what to expect. The attraction is well set-up and the birds look content. A highly recommended must-see!!

Birds respond to people of all ages really well and their personality were greatly varied, some were shy, some were loud and some just wanted head scratches and I was never bitten... More

The family visited The Parrot Place January 2015. It is a very cool place and defiantly worth stopping in. The birds are wonderful and it is so great to get to interact with them. The kids had a great time holding the birds!
