Queensland's lush, tropical north is alive with colorful bird life, and you can experience the festive cacophony of chirps on a visit to Birdworld Kuranda. Over 60 different species of birds make their home in this enclave of forest and waterfalls, and the landscape is built to mimic the surroundings the birds would find in the wild. When walking the open-air aviary, there’s the chance a bird could simply fly up and land on your shoulder, or a curious parrot might cock its head sideways and inspect you while sitting on a tree branch. Visitors also have the chance to hand-feed birds under the supervision of the aviary staff. Keep an eye out to spot Amazonian macaws, kingfishers, and Australian black swans.

Practical Info

Birdworld Kuranda is located near the Heritage Markets in Kuranda. It is a 40-minute drive from Cairns, though most visitors prefer to come via the Kuranda Scenic Rail or Skyrail Rainforest Cableway. There is a free shuttle bus to the Kuranda Skyrail station, and you can combine the visit with Kuranda Koala Gardens, which is located right next door. The aviary is open from 9am to 4pm every day, with guided tours at 11:15am. The price of admission is $18 for adults and $9 for children ages four to 15. Birdworld Kuranda is wheelchair accessible.

Staff-led talks at 11:30am offer more insight on the birds, and you’re allowed to bring in your own camera to shoot photos of birds in the treetops.
