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.

Exceeded our expectations. Seriously amazing experience with birds everywhere. I expected to be looking at them through a cage but they fly all around you, some will land on you to say hello. Well maintained and looked after, all the birds looked healthy and happy.

We loved this place and stayed for around 1.5hrs. Beautiful and funny birds. Pay attention to the warning as you go in, the birds look for things to bite of your belongings and they're so good at it, they see you coming, fly to what...More

Tiny place, feel like birds dont have enough room especially the Cassowary. Found the counter girl pretty rude.

Many thanks for your feedback. The cassowary enclosure is well within the requirements and the birds are both very comfortable there. As regards your 'counter girl' please send us an email and we'll follow up.

Great range of parrots that like to sit on you and interact. I did get bitten on the arm by a parrot for not paying attention to him lol.

This was our second visit to this delightful place. Amazing up close and personal experience with the beautiful birds housed here. Part of our pleasure was watching the delighted looks on the faces of children and the many overseas visitors. Worth a visit.

It was such a great experience to be up close with the birds. You can feed them. pet them and they might even land on you. Do watch the kids though because they can give a little nip.

This place was awesome. Kids were apprehensive at first, but once they got to feed the birds absolutely loved huge variety of birds, and some of them very tame. Definitely worth the money. We got the deal with the koala park as well, which I...More

Not a huge area but so many birds ! They are really tame and it was heaps of fun to feed them. Some happily sat on our shoulders. If there wasn't so much food available to the birds inside the aviary it might have been...More

We had Birdworld included in our train package off the Kuranda railway and were not disappointed. It's not a lengthy attraction by any means but the length of time you spend depends on how much birdseed you have and how piggy the birds are! The...More

They have quite the variety in this fairly small place plus a Cassowary . It's very noisy with all the bird noise but they have some absolutely beautiful birds. You can buy bird food for $3 so they'll come and feed off your hand. One...More

Thanks for your sharing your personal experience Frances. I think the tip is if you wear something shiny, don't complain if the birds decide to tinker with it! I've noted your comments about the shelter area as we've just put brand new tiles down.
