“An excellent bird park”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

A new venture with great potential the collection of birds is extensive and they seem to be well looked after. The planned lake for water birds will make this place a must see for visitors to Broome. There are several benches in shady spots just to sit, rear and enjoy the facility. Well done!

“A nice way to spend a couple of hours”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

We visited the 12 Mile Bird Park and really enjoyed it. It is fairly newly opened (April 2013) and by the owners admission there is still a lot to do, they have plans for a café and other facilities and we will again when we are next in Broome. This is well worth a visit, they have many beautiful birds and it was something we both enjoyed.

“Disappointing”
Reviewed August 24, 2013

This park is new and clearly unfinished. It will be good, but is not yet. We all thought that some of the birds - parrots particularly - were bored and unhappy. One of the black swans seemed upset or unwell. More shade needed. Definitely more swimming for the water birds required. I think the concept is good, but this park may have opened a bit too soon for the benefit of the birds.

“Great day out in Broome”
Reviewed August 15, 2013

The bird park is well laid out and has very colourful display of Birds. Park Is in early stage of development and is a real credit to the owner who has basically set the whole park up himself. The park is well maintained with nice clean cages and the birds are happy. A short drive out from Broome and coupled up with the Mango Farm which is close by makes an excellent day out. Well recommended and definitely worth the drive.

“A must to do”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

This sanctuary for Birds is only new , but the effort gone into it is commendable . first impression is the very clean good sized cages with very clean drinking water & bathing water for the Birds . their is shade from the golden canes & seating around every corner . they have a few entertainers , Ben a cockatoo rings his Bell only when you start to leave .The Blk cockie loves to do Twirls & dance , just bounce up & down & most of the cockies follow . The extensive range of the most colourful Birds of all sorts was amazing . Im sooo glad we checked this out . a bit of fun was definately had .
