Take a stroll along the raised walkway past the landscaped waterfall and gardens to view the birds on display. Varieties of birds include the Gang-gang, Major Mitchell and black cockatoos.

An opportunity to have your photo taken with a black cockatoo is available at 11:00 a.m, and 2:00 p.m.. Limited numbers are available so bookings are required upon arrival.

An added attraction is the full-sized adult animatronic Triceratops dinosaur and baby Triceratops and T-Rex dinosaurs. Children will enjoy the fossil dig table and the timber maze. Find the three-hole punch stamps in the maze to win a small prize. There is also an outdoor picnic area next to the maze.

The cafe serves all-day cake and coffee. Ice creams, hot chips and cold drinks are also available. The outdoor deck provides an opportunity to get up close to the native birds in the area and listen to the waterfall in the background.

The Gift Shop stocks a large range of bird and dinosaur gifts to choose from.
