Jurong Bird Park
Time Out says
This top-notch attraction contains 8,000 birds from 600 species. There’s a multitude of exotic and endangered South-East Asian species, alongside pelicans, penguins, flamingoes, ibises, swans, toucans, birds of paradise – and more.
Key attractions include the largest walk-in aviary in the world, where you’ll find a 30m (98ft) man-made waterfall and over 1,500 birds from Africa and South America flying freely within the huge compound. After a $10m revamp in 2006, the park now has an exhibit modelled on the Okvango River in Botswana, complete with storks, cranes, fish, frogs and African-style huts.
Make new feathered friends like Big John, the park’s oldest cockatoo, and Merlin, a yellow-naped Amazon who tells fortunes at the interactive Early Bird Breakfast Show on daily from 8.30am. Bird shows and feeding sessions take place throughout the day. Joint tickets for the BirdPark, Night Safari and Zoo ($58; $38 children) are available at the ticket counter.
FREE African Waterfall Aviary
A more holistic African experience is now on offer within a simulated tropical rainforest. Admire the 30m-high waterfall enclosed within a 35m-high net ceiling, where over 1,000 African birds roam freely. Enjoy a spanking new suspension bridge, observation posts and the new African hut for all your ornithological conquests.
