  • A fantastic place to visit! It offers beautiful honed gardens change and magic wild rain forest. No "don't you dare to step off the path" signs. Friendly and helpful staff. I'll go again.  more »
  • Lovely garden with absolutely the best views of the Glasshouse Mountains. (Way better than Mary Cairncross Park, where you only see view on your way in.) The garden design makes good use of the hill s...  more »

  • Truly amazing and unique place to visit. Magnificent views of the mountains and large relaxing garden. Boats makes great photo opportunities. Aviary has a large collection of parrots and other birds. You can feed them and make colourful pictures. Friendly staff. Enjoyed it very much!
  • A wonderful experience for the young & not so young. The bird experience was fantastic with the birds flying around you, landing on your shoulder, arm & head. Wonderful. The gardens are a delight. We hired the 4 person buggy & that greatly assisted me in viewing the gardens & other gems. Fantastic place. Well worth the visit.
  • Great experience overall. Wonderful gardens that are being further expanded, perfect for an exploratory wander. The aviary tour is a must do. Was fascinating learning out the birds and seeing such stunning varieties. I particularly enjoyed the final aviary with the bird onslaught! Lol! Not for everyone- those birds will be ALL OVER YOU :) For me, I loved every second!!
  • We were besotted with how beautiful and visually stunning the gardens were and how beautiful and up close you could get with such amazing birds! The friendly owner was lovely enough to show us around the gardens (at every turn there is another stunning pond with birds, lilies, bright amazing flowers etc to the point where we lost count!) and even treated us to seeing three baby Macaws!! He has done an absolutely PHENOMENAL job on the gardens and Avery - I've never seen anything quite like it. The birds were brilliant and would fly right onto your arm with so many species big and small. Our bird guide was really friendly and everyone had a grin from ear to ear patting and feeding these gorgeous birds. Hands down the biggest highlight of our Sunshine Coast trip and an unforgettable experience that we will always remember fondly. Great for families, couples, old and young - 5/5!!!
  • This is such a wonderful place. If you love birds or want to go on an outing with your family, or a romantic picnic with your significant other - this is the place to come to. The Botanic gardens are beautiful, with several hidden waterfalls and ponds. There's plenty of lawn to have a picnic, as well as concrete gazebos and benches. Shade is minimal, so bring some sunscreen and lots of water. The aviary is large, with different segments relating to the temperament of each bird. Be sure not to bring any jewelry because the macaws will steal it/ hurt you in the process. The parrots outside the office are really chill, and if you're not very comfortable with large birds flying down onto your shoulder - I suggest spending time with those little guys instead. Though - I can't recommend the aviary enough. Prices have recently changed so be sure to check the website first. Lovely experience.
