Accessibility & Parking
As our birds can have sharp claws, we recommend adequate clothing to avoid scratches on your shoulders.
We recommend enclosed shoes for your safety, this is an outdoor environment which can become muddy in rainy weather.
Our birds are very inquisitive and attracted to shiny and expensive objects, so we recommend removing all jewellery and other shiny or expensive objects.
(We remind guests that although this is an interactive experience, please respect the birds personal space as you would any other animal.
Please wait for the staff to assist you with holding our birds or allow the birds to come to you freely, keep your hands to yourselves.) Birds diets are very unique and complicated for our bird safety we can not allow any kind of food into the aviary as their diets are carefully monitored.
A variety of nuts are used in all aviaries, if you have allergies please inform us before the tour begins.
For the safety of the birds and guests there must be a trained bird handler in the Aviary at all times with any member of the public. To exhibited restricted birds our license requires a bird handler with the birds at all times.
We provide umbrellas to use around the gardens (free of charge). You can also hire buggies to get around the gardens. Every buggy has a roof so you can stay out of the rain. Aviary Tours still proceed as per normal (unless there is lightening in which case we will close the Aviary for safety reasons). The Aviary Tour Guide will keep you in the under covered section of the Aviary so you can stay dry during your tour.
