Big Bird Encounter

Big Bird Encounter $15 per person

Our Big Bird Encounter runs from 10:30am – 10.45am daily with a maximum of 4 participants.

Get up close and personal with Morgan, our friendly red-tailed black cockatoo. The forest red-tailed black cockatoo is a West Australian icon. These beautiful birds are vulnerable due to habitat destruction, here at the Zoo, our friendly girl, Morgan, loves to interact with the public and share what is truly special about her species.

You’ll also meet Alfie our beautiful male Eclectus Parrot. The Eclectus parrot is found throughout Indonesia, the Solomon Islands, Palau Islands, New Guinea, and in Australia’s far north in Queensland.
