Owner description: Home to the largest single collection of free flying birds in Australia (some 500 of them!), Birdworld Kuranda in the Australian highlands of the Atherton Tablelands displays no less than 75 species of the most spectacular birds from all corners of the planet - as well as from the earth’s fast diminishing rainforests.Visitors are free to wander through the lush, tropically landscaped bird sanctuary to observe the birds in their own specific - yet natural - habitats. Two lakes connected by a tumbling waterfall for example are home to waterbirds such as stilts, herons and Australia’s own unique Black Swan. In Birdworld's rainforest canopy overhead, blue, gold and scarlet Macaws dazzle with colourful brilliance as they soar above the tree tops. One outstanding Birdworld denizen not to be missed is that rare avian giant, the Cassowary - an Australian bird now officially enlisted as endangered.Designed to "create a centre where birds would be showcased in their natural environment without the barriers of cages coming between them and their admiring public", Birdworld Kuranda is a photographer's paradise. (And without those barriers, visitors often find a feathered friend nestling on their shoulder - a golden photo opportunity!) Birdworld Kuranda can provide guided tours for all group bookings.

We had a great time at birdworld, the birds are very friendly and come and sit on your shoulder sometimes your head, we got some great photos, I would definitely buy the bird-food if you want to interact with the birds, they will love you for it.

This aviary is rather smaller than its promotional literature suggests. It is also surprising that it houses more and more non-Australian birds. It does, however, provide an excellent colour chart of the birds shown which is well worth close reading. Worth a brief visit.

Spent just over an hour here one morning. This place is great to get close to a variety of birds. They happily land on you and feed from your hands. Get here early to buy food as they limit food bags to 15 per day and only one per group.

Not a very big area but Birds can fly freely. You can hand feed a number of birds.
Do not go with wearing Shiny objects.

I am speechless! I had the best time and the variety of birds was awesome. The staff are friendly and so are the birds. Just brilliant!
