Visiting the aviary always proved to be a delightful experience. The wide variety of birds to view in an unclose and personal way makes time spent there well worth while.

We spent just over two hours strolling and marveling at so many beautiful birds and other animals. We have kids from 6 months to 11 years and all of us thoroughly enjoyed the visit.

Seems like a small place but there are lots of opportunities to see and hear our feathered friends. Great walk through exhibits and many activities for the kiddos. Even an opportunity to hand feed the lorikeets. Prepare yourself for lots of noise - some of...More

We weren't sure if we would like the aviary but had an afternoon to kill and it was the best thing we did the entire time we were there. If you have time and can plan ahead and book one of the animal excursions, do...More

We stopped in for a possible wedding venue. Still in the running. We were able to see everything quickly. Under an hour. Of course sending more time with the penquins. Parked on the street. Def a must see.

I went to the Aviary with 2 kids under 2. It was a great activity for them. I love that you feel that you can visit the space for 2 hours and feel satisfied with the visit. We definitely didn't see everything, but with children...More
