It was a nice experience being greeted by the birds and their handler when you walk in and the birds are able to sit on your arm/shoulder. The birds are so beautiful but it was distressing seeing the pink/grey bird missing a lot of feathers. We hope it will be ok. I was thrilled at being able to hold a Galah which is my favourite. Bring some wipes for any misfired poop that lands on you 😄

The annoying aspect is the business charging an extortionate amount of money for some seeds to feed the birds. I draw the line at being blatantly ripped off. The woman at the till was incredibly rude and the 1 porter-loo toilet they had in operation, was the most disgusting toilet I have been in, in years.

Really disappointing. A few of the birds don’t look well cared for, 2 looked very ill, 1 had a limp and another loads of feathers missing which is a sign of stress/depression which I’m not surprised about with all the loud noise of gates opening and closing. Pretty expensive for what it is. The toilet was also out of service and no where else to go, staff weren’t helpful at all. I wouldn’t recommend

Hi, A few of our birds are rescue birds, we do not believe that because they may not look pretty or have a limp that they should not be treated the same as our other birds. The pheasant with the limp broke it at birth, he gets around fine and lives a good life as do all of our birds. The birds are also going through a moult at this time of year too. Are you suggesting that we should not have taken them in because they have a few minor issues ?

Came across this place by chance when heading to the Stone Store and so pleased we did. The birds are beautiful and very tame. The kids had a great time feeding them and just spending time is this mazing place. Staff were awesome and happy to answer all the questions we had about the birds. Would definitely recommend.

This was definitely a family favourite! It was absolutely amazing when you could hold the birds and let them climb up your shoulder. The aviary was also great with birds landing on you! My daughter who's allergic to peanuts couldn't feed the birds because of the peanuts but they offered to remove them, made completely new food with no nuts, cleaned and sanitised the bowl for no extra price! It was affordable and fascinating. Some birds could even talk! The only downside would be the birds trapped in cages all day.

Riot of colour and variety of parrots for all ages to view and interact with. Our grandchildren really enjoyed holding the parrots with talking to the friendly staff. Great place for kids 10/10

Highlight of our weekend away with the grandchildren. Staff were fantastic, very interactive with being able to touch the birds. Kids and adults alike loved it. 4 adults and 3 children and only a little over $60 so very affordable. Would highly recommend and will definitely visit again.

A hidden gem in Kerikeri. Beautiful parrots that come to greet you with a “hello”
The aviaries are a wonderful experience for all ages. Inside the cheeky parrots perch on you for some tasty seeds.
Lovely friendly people

One of girls worked there clearly had very bad day I think. Her attitude was so rude. This was my kids fourth visit and my first visit. I suspect we would be our last visit.
