New Cockatoo aviaries, focusing on conservation (AKJ - 2018 visit)
Many parrot species are featured in this astounding attraction, founded by the Harvey family. Some 2000 species of birds and mammals are featured in total, many in landscaped and themed areas such as the Seashore Walk, the Temperate House and the Outback Landing. The Jenny Wren Farm allows children to get up close and personal with fascinating small farm animals, while the adjacent Underwater World includes many aquatic species. There are two groups of penguins, and flying displays featuring several species of birds, including parrots, are held whatever the weather.
Extended cockatoo aviaries (AKJ - 2019)
Sadly last year's away day on a sunny Sunday 15th July 2019 was less well attended. We were unable to use the party room adjacent to the cafe, so there was no 'base camp' available. There were plenty of baby birds of various species, and there has been considerable expansion of the cockatoo aviaries. Last year (2020) and this year's events will be sadly be cancelled owing to Covid-19 restrictions.
