Visited yesterday for a couple of hours and were really impressed. Wide array of tropical birds, in a really nice setting. The birds had lots of space to fly around and were clearly well looked after. It was great to get up close and interact with them in the bird walk at the end of our visit. Our daughter spent...

Perhaps we went at the wrong time of the year but there weren't many birds flying around freely. The birds we did see were very friendly. There were some areas up for construction and being renovated. The walk through areas were very pretty. I'd come back again in a more sunnier month.

Thank you for visiting Tropical Birdland and for your review. We are sorry to hear you didn't see many of our free-fliers, there are some of our birds which do fly overhead but the majority like to stay closer to the visitors on perches so they can get some free food. We do hope you will come and visit us... More

Came here on a rainy day- for some reason I imagined a massive indoor aviary- this is NOT indoors 😂😂 but the rain soon passed and we had a lovely time. The birds on the whole seemed happy and healthy. Our 1 year old daughter was entranced by them! Was a great hit. The only thing that let it down... More

Our family loves a trip to Tropical Bird Land. There are some awsome macaws and quite a few cheeky little birds, most of whom seem to quite like a bit of human interaction. Not a huge amount else there, other than birds, but that's the whole point really!
