Overview

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.

This is our third or fourth time back to Birdworld. We love it because of its simplicity. Beautiful birds, many of whom are happy to land on your shoulder or arm and eat out of your hand. Friendly staff!

We enjoyed about 1.5 hours at Birdworld, wandering the loop a couple times and seeing different birds each time. As others have said, they are inquisitive, and enjoyed playing with new things like buttons or bags, but that's part of the experience. We arrived mid...More

Recommendation is always our best from of advertising. Really appreciate this review Julie and 'yes' our parrots do like to nibble things but you can always leave a bag or something else with our staff at the front if you are concerned.

I adore this place. I buy a yearly pass and my kids have so much fun! The birds are friendly and obviously loved and well looked after. My 5 year old can sit here for hours.
