Jurong Bird Park - Singapore

One of the places we hadn't visited was the Jurong Bird Park........we had visitors last week and that gave us the excuse to go and have a look.

What we saw surprised us greatly. There are so many attractions like The Birds of Paradise, the Birds of Prey, the Swan Lake, the Pelican Cove, the waterfall aviary and too many more to mention.

Here is their website:

and a few photos taken last Sunday:

Jurong BirdPark is a 20.2 hectare open-concept park. It is the largest in the Asia Pacific and the best in the world. Its collection of more than 9,000 birds from 600 species is among the largest in the world. The Park specialises in birds from Southeast Asia.

The Park has four aviaries, among which is the world’s largest walk-in aviary with the tallest man-made waterfall for visitors to enjoy a close-up view of free-flying birds from Africa and South America. Bird shows, staged at the Pool Amphitheatre and Fuji Hawk Walk are entertaining and informative and have thrilled visitors from all over the world.
The BirdPark’s exhibits and aviaries are specially designed to closely resemble the natural habitats of the bids. There are also open spaces landscaped with exotic flowering plants such as heliconias to enhance the beauty of the BirdPark.
Certainly well worth a visit !
When we visit again - and we will - will post more photos.
