Ballarat Bird World

Zoos, Sanctuaries, Aquariums and Wildlife Parks

At Ballarat Bird World visitors can see all the colours of Australian bird life, only a short seven minute drive south from Sovereign Hill.

Take a walk along the raised walkway passed the landscaped waterfall and gardens to view the birds on display. Varieties include the gang-gang, major mitchell and red, white and yellow tailed black cockatoos. Stroll through the huge free flight aviary then wander back and maybe have a drink on the outdoor deck amongst the native bird life.

The cafe is open for morning or afternoon teas and light lunches. Air conditioned in summer and a wood fire for those colder months.

The Souvenir Shop stocks a large range of bird souvenirs for all ages.

The “Birds are Dinosaurs” display is now open. Children will be fascinated to see a baby triceratops amongst the gum trees.

Ballarat Bird World is open from the 26 December 2018 through to 14 January 2019. After these dates, Ballarat Bird World will then be open every Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday from 10:00am to 5:00pm.
