Nice location, well designed with lots of walkways and viewing areas. Opportunity to see a variety of birds, even a few crocodiles. Highly recommended.

“If you enjoy birds, then this is for you!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

We enjoyed a short video on turtles in the birding center before heading out to the boardwalk outside. Then we visited the museum upstairs. What a joyful afternoon spent here with my two children.

“Birds, crocodiles and butterflies”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

Great boardwalks around the bay area with several shaded stops. It can get crowded on a nice day. Plant to spend at least an hour wandering the paths. The day we were there two crocodiles had taken up residence on the shore to sun themselves. Make sure to stop at the Convention Center garden area. If flowers are blooming, butterflies are everywhere.
