Just got off the magnificent ocean freedom machine. What a vessel, what wonderfull helpful staff. I had dived before in Tahiti 20 years ago and felt comfortable, but today I could get a grip of it and with as much help and reassurance from the staff I couldn't dive today. No matter at all as the snorkelling is amazing and the barracuda swimming around the back of the boat was truly amazing. There are 4 different places to relax and we used them all at some point during the day. Money very well spent and I would recommend this to anyone at any level of competence.David Fitchett
Birdworld Kuranda was designed and built in 1995 in Kuranda, designed to showcase birds in their natural environments without cages, creating a truly interactive and pleasant experience for patrons. It is this interaction and ability that allows visitors to get up close to the birds, which makes Birdworld Kuranda a photographer's paradise, and the perfect family getaway. All birds in the sanctuary fly freely, and hand-feeding is also permitted, with many of the rainforest birds being friendly and eager to receive a snack! Birdworld Kuranda provides bird food for purchase when visitors arrive. All birds have had regular contact with humans, and as a result are very tame.
A tumbling waterfall connects the two lakes that play home to waterbirds such as herons, stilts, ducks, kingfishers, and the unique Australian Black Swan. Visitors can walk along meandering boardwalks throughout the rainforest ambience at Birdworld Kuranda to view the vast array of bird life. Sun Conures, kookaburras, galahs, macaws, and lorikeets also fly above the canopy, and finches can be seen scurrying around the rainforest floor.
Another outstanding Birdworld Kuranda denizen is the endangered avian giant - the Cassowary. Cassowaries which can grow up to an astounding 2 metres in height! There are 25 species of birds in the sanctuary that come from vanishing rainforests around the world, including the Daintree Rainforest from Tropical North Queensland. The opportunity that guests have to befriend these rare animals is truly a unique and charming experience.
The best times to see the birds are usually in the morning (when it is less crowded) or in the afternoon after lunch. Guided tours are given in English at 11:15am daily, and all visitors to the bird sanctuary are given a free copy of a very helpful and informative bird guide, with coloured pictures of birds to help with identification. The sanctuary can provide guided tours for all group bookings, and is a non-smoking facility with wheelchair and disabled access. There is an information centre, picnic area, coach parking, kiosk, and souvenir shop. Birdworld Kuranda can provide guided tours for all group bookings as desired.
Birdworld Kuranda is open from 9.00am to 4.00pm daily, 7 days a week. The sanctuary is nestled within the Heritage Markets and connected by walkways to both the Australian Butterfly Sanctuary and Koala Gardens, so why not see all wildlife sanctuaries at once?
Birdworld Sanctuary is located on Rob Vievers Drive in the Heritage Markets Kuranda. Kuranda is a pleasant 30 minute drive up the Kuranda Range from Cairns, although the most popular way for visitors is via the world famous Skyrail Rainforest Cable Way and the Kuranda Scenic Rail
Birdworld Kuranda is open 7 days a week, 9:00 am to 4:00 pm.
