This review will read maniacally negative but this was our experience; we thought it would probably be more humane for the birds to not suffer these conditions and that the charge of money is being wasted to the point where it should be shut down.
There are about 12 cages scattered through the bush with a narrow range of raptors sitting in boxes or trying to escape. Although these are birds too injured to be released my family was a bit traumatised to see the run down state and small size of the enclosures. The signs are small and have some encyclopaedia type info on the species, but not relevant information as to the actual birds, if there is a sign at all. Only one sign told the story of the bird and what plans there were for it's future (breeding). Some enclosures have had branches collapse on them or holes ripped in walls. These have been abandoned but some are hard to tell from the complete ones. There is two demonstrations a day. If you arrive just after one it is a 2 plus hour wait which, with little information, shade or facilities, is quite a haul with children and the elderly. There was minimal communication to more deeply understand the birds and their role in the environment. Owner seems not to care, spent whole time reading newspaper and family members wandered around without attempting any engagement or education. After the second demo of the day there is no more, but hefty entry fee is the same. What little learning there was, with support for the raptors good cause, was overwhelmed by the dilapidated and slightly distressing state of the place. Family declared it a sad waste of time and money.
