Owner description: A beautiful and extensive park on the edge of the inner Tauranga harbour; the bird gardens feature a range of both native and exotic birds. Set in delightful gardens of mature trees, lily ponds and wetlands. Gift shop. Cafe. Golf car hire. A great family day out and place to unwind.

A beautiful location and a very pleasant way through gardens and wetlands. The facilities for the birds themselves need work. It is a great pity.

My friend and I rented a golf cart from here and drove around the gardens. Everything about it was wonderful, from the scenery to the birds following us around wanting to get fed. The tree-house is a great spot for a nice photo opportunity. The owners were lovely too, and suggested a great little place to visit on our drive back. Would definitely recommend visiting here if you're in the area.

Relaxing 1 walk around nice gardens with an entourage of different birds following us wanting food. The pigeons and doves got a little too friendly, so if you have a pathological fear of birds, this place may not be for you. Our 2 year old loved all the birds as well as the playground.

So so many gorgeous birds. The entrance fee is very reasonable considering the amount of birds and amazing gardens. The bird food is cheap which is nice too. Would be a perfect day out if you're on a budget with kids. Love this place!
