Why Bali Bird Park is special ?
Bali Bird Park & Reptile Park is a unique and educational attraction fit for the whole family. Two hectares of fine tropical gardens offer an interesting leisurely walk amidst the rich compilation of nearly a thousand exotic birds from the Indonesian archipelago and around the world.
The Bali Bird Park is located in the village of Batubulan, Gianyar Regency, is a fun and attractive playground for bird lovers and a convenient stopover for those on day tours and en route to the central regions such as Ubud as well as the gold and silversmith’s villages of Celuk and Mas.
Hundreds of different bird species can be found throughout the park grounds in the magnificent aviaries and individual enclosures. Several of the bird varieties jointly dwell and roam free on the open tree perches and in the interweaving ponds throughout the park grounds.
In addition to the main attraction, the adjoining Reptile Park offers an extensive assortment of reptile and amphibian specimens among the horticultural gardens. On display is the giant Komodo dragon with other specimens including pythons, lizards, geckos, toads, frogs, turtles, tortoises and crocodiles.
What to explore at Bali Bird Park?
The Bali Bird Park appeals to families who have the opportunity to get close, touch, feed and view open displays of several tame species, as well as admire rare and exotic collections in their enclosures.
Each individual enclosure and aviary is complemented with an information panel that lists the common and scientific names of the specimen, their origin and species as well descriptions that help visitors to gain a deeper understanding of the live and active specimens in view.
The Free Flight Bird Show lets visitors marvel at the range of antics and abilities of birds of prey and other winged creatures in the collection. Magnificent eagles, owls, and macaws soar through the skies, dive down at dummy prey, and snatch food from their handlers to the amazement of the audience.
An interactive feeding time feature enables visitors to actively participate in the daily feeding schedules at the park. The keepers recreate the bird’s natural feeding environment – greater birds of paradise feed around you and amazing flycatchers perform aerobatics as you feed them.
A ‘4D Avian Theatre’ experience is a new and exciting feature for families at the bird park, showing the animation feature ‘Rilly’s Sky Adventure’. The film tells of a group of migrating ducks and the heart-warming but perilous quest of young Rilly the duck as he embarks with his family on his first migration south for the winter.
One of the missions carried out by the park management and team of ornithologists is to breed endangered species in captivity in order to preserve their species including the indigenous Bali Starling (leucopsar rothschildi) often referred to by locals as ‘Jalak Bali’.
Bali Bird Park features a special ‘Hatchling Area’ to show visitors several specimens in their early stages since hatching, their juvenile stages, and in their mature phases. The park’s successful breeding programs include rare parrots and the team houses and breeds over 40 protected species in the park.
You would be tempted to think that the birds in the trees and on the artificial perches could just easily fly away - but they simply don’t. And there are no nets visible in the open sky above the park grounds. Majestic peacocks roam in and around the open lawns, colourful toucans and parrots welcome you to play with them from branches – all ready for different poses and photo opportunities.

Tips for you
Bali bird park was a delightful surprise! Upon entering the park, exotic birds perch the trees- and whats amazing is there is not a single chained bird!!! They are free to fly away- and yet they don't (which to me says a lot about how well they are looked after). Only one entry fee is needed, then everything inside is free of charge- so taking photos with all the birds! I got to hold numerous exotic birds, all which were friendly and amazing (I especially loved the Horn bills! they look prehistoric and so unbelievably beautiful). They also have a large walk in avery with some ridiculous amount of tropical and exotic birds. The Victorian Crowned Pigeons were surprisingly very large! so beautiful! You also get access to the reptile park next door- where we paid a staff member 10,000 ($10 AUD) to feed a crocodile, hold the komodo dragons and pick up a 50kg turtle! which was very spontaneous. All in all, one of the best days I had in Bali. I would recommend Bird Park to everyone. One more thing. If you are deciding between the Bird Park and Bali Zoo- definitely do Bird Park. Bali Zoo was not worth the money- and is quite small.
Bali Bird Park has lots and lots of great birds, two neat Jungle walk-thru enclosures where you can join the birds, and the Birds of Prey demonstration is outtasite. They have eagles, owls, ospreys an
