It is home to red, blue and gold, and dwarf macaws; African, Amazon, Eastern Rosella, and Eclectus parrots; a Sulphur Crested Cockatoo; and a variety of canaries, finches, pheasants, and waxbills.

There are laminated self-guided maps available with information on the various birds, tropical plants and flowers.

    Oooh lovely!

    I’d been up to see the views from outside the conservatory, but I didn’t know there were birds to see inside. Thanks for sharing this…I`ll have to go back and take a peek.
