Went here yesterday with my wife not knowing what to expect. Seeing the different types of parrots was an eye opening experience. Having the birds perch and climb up our arms was magical. - Animal loves :)

My wife, (adult) daughter and myself thoroughly enjoyed our time spent with the parrots, especially in the flight aviary. It was interesting to let the parrots land on us and explore. The owner was extremely informative about the habits and personalities of many of the parrots.

Loved this friendly little place. Great place to spend an hour. Well kept clean grounds and friendly owner who was happy to talk (sometimes people just want your money and this was not the case). Make sure you buy food from the shop to feed the birds on your way in, I made a mistake in not getting the large... More

Fun direct experience with parrots of all sizes and colours. Can get very up close with them all. All ages will enjoy this experience unless you are scared of birds.

We had a wonderful visit there--myself, daughter-in-law and twin 3 yr old boys:-))! The staff were great--explained things well for us all of us! The boys had birds climbing up their arms to their shoulders and heads--amazing! There is also a playground that they really enjoyed. It was a great experience for all of us.

Visited with my 11year old son and 2 year old daughter who absolutely loved it. Friendly staff enjoyed holding and feeding the birds that are well cared for. Would highly reccommend for anyone with families.

Looking for a great place to go to with your little ones. Young and old all will really enjoy this experience. It is a family run place close to Keri Keri and is not to be missed. It was Lots of fun and very educational. Loved the interaction with the birds.

I'm not a zoo person, avoid them as they make me sad... so was unsure about the Parrot Place. I really enjoyed it! Having the opportunity to hold them, have them fly around you in open cage areas and feed them was a lot of fun. The guy there was friendly and informative and we spent a good 45 mins... More
