We love going here to see Paul's birds. It is well priced and is easy to find. If Paul is around you can get to interact with the birds too. A nice place to spend a couple of hours.

What a wonderful place to check out cockatoos up close. the owners have a very amazing understanding of all the birds they care for. Shame on the Ballarat City Council for not helping out. We have been several times and have enjoyed our visits immensely....More
