“Ok, but not at the price”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2014

We were exceedingly disappointed in this park, though our daughter did enjoy it. Basically a ton of birds in cages, and they do not look particularly happy. I deliberated at length about submitting a bad review, as I don't want to harm this business which has had a lot of work put into it. This is a private collection that has gone public (and expanded) as far as I can make out. If it was 5 bucks to get in I would have thought 'fair enough' but at $40 for two adults and a kid, we felt like we had been taken for a ride. If you are going to charge this much, at least improve bird facilities, and make sure that the the cards with info on each cage are not faded beyond recognition (some only). Come on.

“Beautiful bird sanctuary”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

The bird farm is a short trip outside of Broome but worth the drive. A great display of mostly Australian birds with some exotics, the birds are well kept in good enclosures. Many of the cockatoos talked and danced and enjoyed interacting with us.

“Great Excursion when visiting Broome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014

The park is very well laid out, easy meandering paths round the numerous avaries. Some wonderful birds to see, and many of the parrots will interact. The collection of old tractors makes the surrounding even more interesting!

A special thank you to the staff who were great, very friendly and very thoughtful, offering to help me photograph the birds close up.

“Nice little trip out of Broome”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2014

We really enjoyed the Bird Park. All of the birds were very well looked after with lovely enclosures. The park is a short 20 minute drive out of Broome. Good value.

“Recommended visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2014

Just loved the fact there was so many birds, initially I thought I won't want to see birds, but the visit was recommended to us. Pleased we did the tour was great to see the passion the owner has for his birds.
