Safe Interaction Guideline

As part of the commitment and concern for your safety, please read and acknowledge the following safety, interaction and feeding guidelines that apply within the flight aviary.

  • The birds are friendly. Very friendly! Many of them enjoy physical contact with visitors and can be incredibly curious. Parrots have powerful beaks for cracking hard seed pods. They are also ideal for removing jewellery. Please remove all loose items from your person, including ear rings, hats, watches and sunglasses and stow them safely away until outside the aviary.
  • If a bird lands on your shoulder please do not make any sudden moves or loud noises. It may scare the bird, which may dig in with its claws and flap its wings in order to keep its balance. Once their curiosity is satisfied, the birds will usually fly off by themselves. If a bird is unusually "sticky" and has worn out its welcome, seek assistance from the staff.
  • Umbrellas are available at reception for those guests who would rather admire the birds from afar. Please use them responsibly. Umbrellas can scare birds and be hazardous to other visitors.
  • Bird poo on the shoulder, or even in the hair, is a badge of honour here at Birdworld! It does not stain clothes and is easily removed with a damp cloth when fresh or with a stiff brush when dried.
  • Any outstretched finger pointed at a bird's head is usually an open invitation for a bite!
  • Help to care for the birds. Please do not bring any food or drink into the flight aviary. Items can be left at reception if required.
  • In the interest of hygiene it is always a good idea to wash your hands thoroughly after interacting with wildlife. Handwash gel is available at reception and at the toilets.
 

Australian Butterfly Sanctuary

Australian Butterfly Sanctuary is the largest butterfly flight aviary and exhibit in Australia - an all-weather experience in the heart of Kuranda. Home to over 2,000 magnificent tropical butterflies, you will be enchanted by the aerial dynamics of these elusive wonders of nature as you wander through the aviary's rainforest gardens.

All butterflies are local rainforest species, including the electric blue Ulysses and the majestic green and yellow Cairns Birdwing butterflies.

Guided aviary tours detailing a butterfly's life cycle and behaviour are available at no extra cost throughout the day. Be sure to wear something bright (recommend red, white or hot pink) and let these beautiful and colourful creatures flutter all over you as you wander through!

After walking through the aviary, the guide will take you to the breeding laboratory, which houses up to 4,000 caterpillars. This interesting and educational experience provides an opportunity to view at first hand the breeding laboratory through special viewing windows, where you will see the caterpillars in their varying stages of development.
