Breakfast with the birds

Please note this experience is currently on hold.

Our Breakfast with the Birds season has finished for 2020/2021, and will recommence on Sunday 3 October, 2021.

In the early part of the day, Cleland comes alive to the tune of the many bird species who call the park home. Enjoy this exclusive tour with our experienced bird keeper before the park opens at 8am when the birds are most active. There will be plenty of time to ask questions and take photos of birds in the Mallee, Forest and Swamp Aviaries.

Tour Highlights:

Exclusive access to the Park where you will spend quality one on one time with our knowledgeable Bird Keeper -

Have the opportunity to feed various species of birds in the Park

Opportunity to take photographs undisturbed by other visitors and while birds are at their most relaxed

Have the best possible opportunity to hear and see critically endangered bird species and learn how Cleland is actively involved with the conservation of these precious and declining species

Gain insight into the bird round, the birds on the round and the keepers experience working with the birds (i.e. which birds breed, different personalities, bird history etc). Learn about our local environment and the importance of habitat protection for not only birds but other native flora and fauna.

Enjoy a relaxed breakfast in our Café, either close to the fire place or outside in the morning sun with the wild lorikeets. Guests can also choose to have their breakfast packed into a picnic hamper to enjoy in the Park.
