Indonesia is home to more than 1,600 species of exotic birds, and many find their home at the Bali Bird Park. Ubud's top wildlife attraction hosts eight separate exhibits showcasing 250+ bird species from Papua, Sumatra, Bali, Java, Borneo, and beyond. Don't miss the bird-feeding sessions and free flight shows.
With attractions from shows to a 4D cinema, as well as more than 1,000 individual birds, it's worth spending several hours at Bali Bird Park. Visit during a full-day Ubud tour that also calls on Batuan village, Pura Desa Batuan temple, Ubud Market, and other destinations. Many travelers prefer to secure admission tickets and arrange transport via taxi, private driver, Uber, Kura-Kura Bus, or self-drive.
Dedicated Bali Bird Park tours typically include not just the entrance ticket but sometimes also lunch and door-to-door transfers with an English-speaking driver. These are more convenient than haggling with touts and safer than self-drive.

How to Get There
The Bali Bird Park is about a half-hour’s drive south of central Ubud, yet easy to reach from Kuta. The most affordable Bali Bird Park transport option is line 5 of the Kura-Kura Bus, which connects to Sanur and central Ubud. The route is well signposted by Balinese standards, yet many prefer to hire a driver rather than risk the roads themselves.
When to Get There
Open seven days a week, throughout the year—with the exception of the Nyepi "Day of Silence" holiday—there is no bad time to explore the Bali Bird Park. During the rainy season, roughly October to March, rain is common in and around Ubud, particularly in the afternoons. Arrive early to beat the crowds, later to enjoy the bird shows.
The Bali Starling
Besides being a display center for Indonesia’s spectacular bird life, the Bali Bird Park runs a robust conservation and breeding program. It has been instrumental in ensuring the survival of the critically endangered Bali starling, the national bird of Bali. See these beautiful white birds in the Bali exhibit.
