This was back in January 2012, so I apologize in advance! Whatever you do, do not go here on a 46 degree day (unexpectedly hot for Kangaroo Island!)! The attraction was wonderful overall: Friendly and informative staff, animal shows, animal patting and feeding. It's fun for everyone big or small, i'd recommend it! TIP: make sure you wear closed shoes... More

The birds of prey show was great! It was interactive and fun for all ages. The birds were quite entertaining and there were opportunities to hold a few of them as well as allow one to hop onto audience members' laps. It's great to know that there are people like the folks who own and run Raptor Domain to help... More

My friends and I attended the morning bird show and absolutely loved it. The variety of birds on display was great. I got to hold a kookaburra and had an owl sit on my lap! The staff obviously loved their jobs and were very passionate. Great place!

The Raptor Domain on Kangaroo Island is a wonderful place to get up close and personal with some of the birds they have rescued and have participating in the shows. Fun to have them hop on your lap during the show although I get a little uneasy around birds of any size but still it was neat. So many great... More

This is a great interactive show especially if you sit in the front row. The birds hop from lap to lap. However, beware as they are unpredictable as we saw when one of the trainers were pecked on the nose. He was quite astounded but covered up the moment with a quick exit

Wow, this was a great experience, being so close to the birds. The wedge tail eagle, an owl that sat on your lap, kookaburras sitting on your arm and so many more beautiful birds you don't normally manage to get close too. There was more, quite a small zoo of animals. Well worth the visit.
