#2 of 6 in Wildlife in Kuranda
Get up close with colorful rainforest birds at Birdworld Kuranda. At Australia's largest single collection of free-flying birds, more than 500 of them will fly around you as you walk through their rainforest habitat. Some might even perch on your shoulder. Have your camera ready as you walk past waterfalls and ponds with lush plant surroundings and view nearly 80 different bird species, including the endangered cassowary, rainbow lorikeets, and cockatoos. If you purchase a bag of feed at the front counter, expect a lot of attention from the park's denizens.

  • She is cute birds chirping, screeching, scary. Other foreign guests who are on top of the head or on the shoulders of bait, and was playing with the bird. Could not, I fear, but I wanted to try in such a way.

  • Must do in Kuranda, birds are very friendly and unafraid of humans (sometimes too friendly!), good for those with children, only criticism is that it needs signs saying some of the birds do bite  more »
  • Live "talking to birds" - you can feed the birds, they can sit on you - they don't feel like the caged animals in a zoo. You can take close-up photos of numerous bird kinds. Most impressive are, witho...  more »

  • Birdworld was great! Definitely worth the trip when in Cairns! The birds are free flying and land on you. Some of them will even have a conversation and a laugh! Make sure to remove all jewellery or anything shiny, pretty much anything that would appeal to a bird. The birds are great and I would definitely do this again. Great for all ages, not just kids! Highly recommended.
  • Do you want to interact with exotic bird? Do you want bird selfies? If so, this is your place - as you can see from our images below. When they tell you that the birds are going for anything they find interesting, believe them. Buttons, unique hair, metal clips - the macaws worked as a team to take the top button off of a baseball cap that a chap was wearing (you can see that in a picture below), and if there was anything shiny they were on it! The most interactive birds are waiting for you as soon as you enter, and within 10 feet in they will be all over you if you want them to - and quite possibly if you don't. The staff is around to help you out as much as they could, but it's pretty much a world of the birds at that point. The only disappointment was that the cassowary stayed in the shade and hid.
  • It was much better than I expected. You get the chance to interact with the birds one on one with the chance to feed them. The aviary was set up beautifully with a wonderful selection of both Australian birds and birds internationally. Great place to go.
  • What a great way to spend time with family, enjoying the beauty created for us all. Really clean and well-kept environment.
  • Awesome experience! An absolute must for anyone travelling to Kuranda (unless you're scared of birds flying and landing on you!) We loved it!
