Great place to entertain the kids or even the adults. Lots of off road parking behind the place. Great selection of parrots. Opportunity to hold birds and take photo's. Enjoy the colours and conversations, Hello, hello. You can even feed them.

Went here yesterday with my wife not knowing what to expect. Seeing the different types of parrots was an eye opening experience. Having the birds perch and climb up our arms was magical. - Animal loves :)

Hi chris we have a good Bird World here in australia (cairns), no small cages like the ones in the pics. We were told to stay away from the Macaws as it was breeding season and they get vicious. So perhaps this is why your Elmo experience was diffeent. My question is, what time of day did you visit? I know that with animals the time of day can also affect their behavior and I am hoping to visit he next April.
