Had a fantastic half day owls and eagles experience. Shorna and Carly were brilliant. Very knowledgeable, and humorous really made it a special day. They gave us ample opportunity to spend time handling the birds and having the exhilarating task of flying an eagle. A truly memorable day. I want to do it all over again.

There were about 12 of us in our group, led by two instructors named Jamie and Jon. Firstly I'd like to say how great Jamie and Jon are at their job, they obviously care... More

I took my 6yr Iola nephew here for a birthday treat in early March. I had previously visited the centre when it was at the old location (Shuttleworth Park) and therefore I was. Interested to see how much it had changed. I am happy to say that, although the new location is not as scenic - the enthusiasm of the... More

Have been to many Raptor centres and this is the best yet. Many birds to look at. But I went for a half day eagle experience. Having a Bald Eagle land on your arm and take off again is indescribable. We also handled other birds as well including many owls, American Kestrel and adult and juvenile bald eagles and possibly... More

This was an experience day bought by my children, for me. The birds were great and the people showing them off obviously knew their stuff and were interesting to listen to. My day included archery and air rifle shooting which again was well organised and run by John & Carl. However, the voucher I printed off had the wrong address... More
