One of Several Free, Fun Family Activities inside Hong Kong Park
May 2021
A fun, free aviary in the centre of Hong Kong, this is one of the sights inside Hong Kong Park. The birds fly freely inside a large netted tent-like enclosure, often swooping past quite close to you. The boarded walkways are elevated like bridges, winding their way through the enclosure and letting you walk through the tree canopy.
The artificial valley floor has a stream and small waterfall effect, with lush green growth, ferns and tall trees so the whole thing is lovely to walk through.
Altogether there is something like 500+ birds and about 70 different species, including some endangered ones. However, the area is large enough and the greenery is dense enough that you only see a small fraction of them. Nevertheless, it is good fun and we spent 15-20 minutes wandering through. The parrots had sudden, startling calls that alerted you to their presence and the brilliantly white Bali Mynas constantly swept past. I particularly liked the small, cherry red that darted around and the beautiful cobalt blue bird that sat, chipping away at a suspended corn feeder, happy to be photographed.
This is a great, free activity for kids. As you walk in, pick up one of the brochures. It has a chart listing some of the birds and their habitats, diet etc. Kids can check off how many of the birds they can spot.
The park has a number of other free attractions also, including a central lake with a waterfall that you can walk behind, turtles and giant koi fish, the colonial Flagstaff House, a playground and a little-known viewing tower with a wonderful outlook.
GETTING THERE: Hong Kong Park is easy to access. There are several entry points but I generally go from Admiralty MTR station, then cross over to the lovely Pacific Place shopping centre and use the escalators near Harvey Nicholls to take you up and outside to the park.

Take your time or have a quick walk through it’s up
To you. You’ll see some amazing colored birds in here. Head for HK Park and take the Kennedy Road entrance. Admiralty is the closest MTR.

I could have spent hours here admiring all of the beautiful birds. Such a nice place to go to get away from the busy city and listen to the sounds of many different tropical birds. Keep your eyes open, some are really hard to spot! Free!

A great way to spend a few hours in the middle of Hong Kong
Oct 2019
Its right in Central, this little oasis amongst the tall buildings. A beautiful setting of greenery with lovely waterfalls, a very large aviary where you can walk on a wooden walkway around the treetops and be greeted by hordes of birdlife. Its a photographers paradise and with us both being keen photographers we spent a good 2-3 hours indulging and being amused by the antics of birds from all over the world. Just one warning though, the mosquitos had a field day with us. They have an iradication program going and regularly spray there but we still got bitten. We will be back though. Its too peaceful to miss

It seemed like it was still a work in progress, but it is pretty cool and totally free. We enjoyed walking around Hong Kong Park and delighted to come across this aviary.

Worth a visit on a nice day
Jul 2019
The aviary is definitely worth a visit on a nice day. However we went in July and it was hot/humid so it was a little rough. There's a significant amount of walking and climbing but it is beautiful. We came here right after Victoria Peak which worked out well.

Free entry and heard it has been renovated! Some very brave birds on display. A new aviary to absorb the vista of HK skyline as well.

So many interesting and colorful birds.
Aug 2019 • Solo
Came by MTR, walked thru the mall to get there. The park is nice too. I stayed for a few hours trying to get good shots of so many birds. I travel to HK regularly, I’ll definitely go back.
Check the weather forecast.
I Stayed late (till after 6 pm in HK Park), I had bites all over ver my arms- don’t think from aviary but from being in the park. Spray repellent accordingly.

Impressive aviary with a huge range of birds. Excellent opportunity to use your camera for close ups. It gets really hot so I advise you to take a drink.
