“Wonderful Suprise !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2014

We went to Birds of Eden not knowing what to expect and were blown away by the experience. The variety of birds is astounding and the whole experience of walking along the boardwalk amongst the birds and fauna and flora was a wonderful way to see the birds in their natural environment. Take time out to go and see the birds, you won't be disappointed !

“Stunning......”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2014

We try to go here every time we're in town and each time seems to be more special than the last. A beatuiful array of birds wrapped in a well desingned enclosure. Even if birds aren't your "thing" you will be impressed.....

“Birds Of Eden”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2014

If ever in any doubt that Nature does not include Humour with Beauty, this is the best place to see it all. The Birds are so beautiful and the Colours will astound you. Some are tame and mimic the voices and sounds of humans. The biggest Free-flight Sanctuary in the World awaits your visit!!

“good day out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

combine this with monkey land for a good day out. Great for children and if the weather is not good enough for the beach. Birds of Eden particularly good, largest bird sanctuary under cloth. Close up viewings of rare & colourful birds all tastefully done.
