“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

The handlers had a passion for their work with the birds and this made the show. Of course the birds are the real stars they just don't know it. It is aI wonderful experience for the young and young at heart. The handlers involve the children with hands on experience which will hopefully enstill a need to help protect our wildlife. Make sure you drive around the island very careful as there is plenty of wildlife that don't know the road rules so it is up to all of us to keep them safe.

“Very worthwhile”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

We did the Raptor show and the reptiles. Loved both - very informative and interactive. We thought the presentation was handled well and allowed children and adults to handle the animals. The handlers obviously have a passion for these animals. Thanks

“Up close and personal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

Go ahead and have a look. If you like birds, this is an attraction for you. The rangers get up close to the point you can handle some of the birds. Easy to see they love and care for them very well. The demonstrations they give are very good and keep an eye out for the Tawny Frogmouth, he's there watching you!!! Can you see him.

“Brilliant educational display for all ages.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013 via mobile

Fantastic display of some of Australia's native birds and reptiles. Very educational and full of information. We loved seeing the birds and reptiles up close and interacting with them in a safe and friendly environment. Highly recommended display for all ages! We got to speak to the owners and workers all of which are very lovely people.
