On the hunt for things to do in Cairns that include getting up close and personal with wildlife? If so, then you will find Birdworld Kuranda a sanctuary that is very “hands on”!

Located at Kuranda heritage Markets, Birdworld is probably as close as you will ever get to handling many amazing and exotic birds from all over the world. Kids absolutely love it, so we highly recommend Birdworld if you’re out looking for Cairns attractions that are child friendly.

Join the birds in a sanctuary designed to replicate a wondrous tropically landscaped habitat and walk around the complex to get up close and personal with some truly amazing wildlife, including some fascinating ground dwelling birds such as the endangered Cassowary.

Featuring over 80 species, Birdworld is certainly not short of local feathered friends to keep you entertained and many are “very” comfortable around people. In fact, don’t be surprised if you find yourself walking down one of the board walks only to have an inquisitive King or Eclectus Parrot land on your shoulder. You can get a real start if you’re not expecting it!

Now when you’re in Birdworld, you will get plenty of hand feeding and photo opportunities, but not just with the birds. Birdworld is also home to some resident kangaroos, koalas, wombats, fresh water crocodiles and numerous reptiles. Hand feed the local kangaroos and wallabies or even have your photo taken with a cuddly koala.

Tips and Tricks

Take off your jewellery before heading into the bird sanctuary. Birds love to get their claws and beaks into shiny things!

Be gentle when handling the birds and let them walk or fly where they want to. The birds are calm and used to being handled but a firm hand could result in a peck.

Some of the birds are BIG, so just be aware that some of the parrots make a budgie look tiny in comparison.

So if you’re out and about and looking for a good day out with that wildlife appeal, be sure to pop through to Birdworld. It’s a lovely way to finish after browsing through Kurandas many market stalls.
