What an adventure. Very knowledgable staff who gave us a full tour of the attraction - detailed information of all the various birds of prey. Then we enjoyed an excellent and very different Hawk Walk. We got an opportunity to fly a hawk.

I loved this place for a few reasons, One because I love animals and two because it is on the grounds of the beautiful Rathwood. What more do you want!

We loved every minute of it, we done a hawk walk with Martha, a harris hawk. The centre has loads of other birds. Falcons, owls a vulture and James the golden eagle and more. Owners were very nice and informative. We will be going back again that's for sure.

We had a fantastic time at woodlands Falconry. Staff are so nice and informative. You can hear the passion in their voices. The birds looked amazing. From the baby owls up the the magnificent James the golden eagle. Too many to name them all. The set up is perfect. Will be back. Thanks for everything.

Small and distressing for the wildlife. Staff very informative but birds didn't appear very content.
