Ballarat Bird World

408 Eddy Avenue, Mount Helen, Victoria, 3350

At Ballarat Bird World visitors can see all the colours of Australian bird life, only a short seven-minute drive south from Sovereign Hill.

Take a stroll along the raised walkway passed the landscaped waterfall and gardens to view the birds on display. Varieties include the Gang-gang, Major Mitchell and red, white and yellow-tailed black cockatoos. A fantastic photo opportunity with a red-tailed black cockatoo is available at 11:00 am, 2.00 pm and 4:00 pm at no extra charge. Just use your own camera.

The animatronic triceratops dinosaur is also currently on display in a bush setting and is proving to be very popular with all those children who love dinosaurs.

Stroll through the huge free-flight aviary then wander back and maybe have a drink on the outdoor deck amongst the native birdlife.

The cafe is open all day for morning and afternoon teas. Air-conditioned in summer and a wood fire for those colder months. The Gift Shop stocks a large range of bird and dinosaur toys and gifts.

Ballarat Bird World is open every Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm. Also open school holidays and public holidays except for Christmas Day.
