Breakfast with the birds

In the early part of the day, Cleland Wildlife Park 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.

There will be plenty of time to ask questions and take photos of birds in the Woodland, Forest and Swamp aviaries. You will gain an insight into the daily duties of our bird keeper and learn interesting facts about different bird personalities, bird history and breeding programs. Learn about our local environment and the importance of habitat protection, not only for birds, but also for other native fauna and flora.

Tour Highlights:

Entry into the park for the day.

Exclusive access to the park before opening hours, spending quality one-on-one time with our knowledgeable bird keeper.

The chance to feed various species of birds in the park.
