Eagles Heritage Wildlife Centre

Reviewed 21 June 2014

The Eagles Heritage Wildlife Centre surprised us with a variety of eagles and owls that we could see up close. The highlight was donning a glove and having an owl sit on our arm. We learnt a lot about owls and eagles that we were unaware of before. We loved this visit,

It has been a few years since we have visited Eagles Heritage and we must admit that it appears that not a lot has been done to the physical aspects of the Wildlife Centre since then. However the birds appear to be well-looked after (I noted the dishes of very clean water in the enclosures) and we wanted to support the work of the Centre. It is a non-profit organisation. and the admission costs are reasonable.

The displays at 11am and 1.30pm are well-presented. The barn owl with the option of having this magnificent bird sit on your arm for a closer view and then the flying black kites having some exercise and food were the highlights.
We believe anything to educate the public about the much maligned Wedged Tail Eagle truly needs supporting.

Popular on the day we visited, but reliant on visitors and donations to maintain the park. It could do with a bit of work to enhance the attraction of the park - perhaps incorporate native flora throughout the walk between enclosures.
The enclosures could do with a bit of work, but they appear to be focusing more on rehabilitation than long term housing of these birds. The flight display is very informative and educational.

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.

This place needs more publicity. It is an excellent place for anyone to visit. Even if you don't have a particular love for animals or birds, you will gain something from this visit.

The flying display was full of information and definitely educating. Everyone gets a chance to have a picture taken with the owl on your arm. The best part for me was getting to look at it so up close. Presentation was very well delivered.

The entrance fee was definitely worth it at $15 for adults and there are different rates for seniors and children as well as a family package. Keep in mind the money goes to maintaining the place and rehabilitation of the birds. Flying displays at 11am and 1.30pm for about 45 minutes. Definitely have a walk around having a look at all the other birds as well.
