Breakfast with the Birds

Wildlife Habitat’s Breakfast with the Birds is a truly interesting experience. Before going, you may see photos of individuals eating their brekky and random birds just wandering about. Well, this is actually what happens! And, if you’re not looking, a sneaky little bird might just steal the food off your plate, so be aware whenever you’re stepping away for even the slightest second.

At only $14 extra to the normal entrance price, Breakfast with the Birds gives you access to a full buffet breakfast as well as entry into the park.

Lunch with the Lorikeets

Lunch with the Lorikeets is pretty much like breakfast except with lunch foods at the buffet. So, if you’re too tired to get up early for your breakfast, then lunch might be the way to go. This ticket also gives you access to the park.

Other Activities

brooke feeding wallabiesAnimal presentations are given throughout the day. These let you get up-close with koalas, snakes and baby crocs, and they even provide for some great souvenir photos.

If these aren’t you style of animals, bags of roo food only cost $2 and can have adorable little wallabies feeding from the palm of your hand. I think feeding the wallabies was my favorite part of the whole experience, but if you are the type of person that can’t handle cute, then you’ll want to stay very far away!
