Fun Day Out Activities

Feathered Friends

Interactive Free -Flight Bird Show!

Flying overhead and landing on audience members arms, our incredible bird ambassadors provide the opportunity for all kids to handle and interact with these amazing creatures and is a huge part of what our birds are trained to do.

We bring with a range of birds including Eclectus Parrots, Barn Owl, Major Mitchell Cockatoo, Red-tailed Black Cockatoo and a Macaw.

We can even bring a flying furry marsupial that shares the same living environment as birds, Sugar Gliders!

Seeing and interacting with these animals up close and personal allows you to feel a personal connection to the animals.

“AMAZING!!  Both kids and staff loved.  Great instructors, beautiful birds – as soon as they left kids wanted to know when we were having them back!  Will definitely book again”.

Facilitator Profile

Feathered Friends is a community organisation that all started with the desire to improve on the care of birds in captivity. It is now one of Australia’s largest and most empowering avian facilities; providing captive and wild birdlife with hope and the chance to experience wild flight again. The facility, known as the Sanctuary, is dedicated to the education and preservation of the world’s bird species, and is specially designed for our birds as a place for them to call home.

Feathered Friends endeavours to inspire the public about our native and exotic fauna, and as a result have created a selection of educational programs and presentations.

We absolutely loved feathered friends!!! The staff were amazing and so comforting for children and staff who weren’t a big fan of birds. Both the men were fun and energetic when presenting and the kids had so much fun 😊

We recently had the Feathered Friends in for our last vacation care and everyone loved it! The entire experience was professional and very spectacular to see, the kids had a great time and so did our educators. The birds were beautiful! I do believe we will be having them in the future again!

The children enjoyed it and it was even more interactive then I thought. I thought they would show the animals but they also had the kids physically involved in the birds flying from one person to the next and holding chicks. It was great.
