This attraction is really God for young kids and will keep them enthralled and well occupied. Most of the birds are extremely game and kids are able to strike and per them, whilst others are marked not to touch. Staff are very good and encourage small children to get to know the birds. There is a playground and picnic table... More

We had a great time. Easy place to find and park at. The whole experience started with a warm greeting from the smiling manager. Up close and personal experience, handling and feeding the birds. It was very quiet people wise - the birds were very chirpy and friendly though... 😁 Think we picked an ideal day. Lots of fun.

actually the rating is not fair as i have not been inside. but that is the issue- you go there and its a house. with no parking outside so you have to somehow overcome the fear you are going into the wrong place to go in- we couldn't do that. I have NO IDEA if the parrots are nice or... More

Please come and visit our birds again. As you enter through our gates there are two clearly visible signs to say there is a car park to the left and the entrance to see the birds on the right. Park on the grass outside and venture in and talk to one of our staff who will be happy to help... More

We really enjoyed visiting this place. The owner was so knowledgeable and all the staff friendly. It was fun to be able to hold the birds and walk amongst them in the aviaries. There was a variety of different birds and the signs were very informative. It was possible to buy a container of food to feed the birds although... More

Our children enjoyed feeding the parrots and even holding some. A small playground for smaller kids was a nice little break.

Really patient with my toddlers. Such a relief when you have three naughty ones. Very cool. Spent an hour there but you could spend longer.

Awesome little family run business. The owner is bird passionate and extremely friendly and accommodating. Let's you hold the birds at the start, even the children and is a real highlight. You can also feed the birds as you go around the enclosures.

The Avery's are packed with birds. Some large ones you can walk through. Some of the birds talk. I think its good value on the entry price, but it should include the cup of bird seed instead of charging extra for it. Besides that it will keep the kids occupied for a good 2hrs. Our advice, pack a picnic lunch,... More
