Impromptu adventuring, exploring our backyard and then putting pen to paper, hoping to entice you to try one, if not all, of our escapades, is my true reward!

Give yourself the owl Xperience


This is such a fabulously mystical evening out. Hosted by Sunshine Castle in Bli Bli and Raptor Vision, another raptor-ous evening has been lined up for keen 'owl-ees' - my new word. Visitors to a Night with Owls will discover the magic of the Castle at night, whilst being introduced to the spectacular, swooping beauty of owls.

Learn about the owls' habitats, their lifestyle and most importantly, their conservation, all the while having these majestic birds swooshing over your head with dignity and grace.

A fabulously unique location


Raptor Vision has a team of dedicated trainers whose objectives are the rehabilitation of sick and injured birds on the Sunshine Coast. These wondrous birds of prey are helped to build up their strength and fitness, ensuring that once they are released back into the wild, the owls are capable of doing what comes naturally to hunt and fend for themselves. The breathtaking birds of a feather that are used in the Raptor Vision demonstrations are all ambassadors for their species, helping to educate the public on their continued successful conservation and preservation. All money raised from the exhibitions is used towards improving the owls' enclosures.

'Owl' be honest, this sure sounds like it's going to be a hoot, promising a raptor-ous night, in a totally unique location.

Don't forget your camera for some personal shots with the owls!


🦉 An added bit of trivia for readers: Did you know that a group of owls is called a 'parliament'? Yes, really! Apparently this is because owls have always been considered to be of a wise disposition. In Greek mythology, the owl is the symbol for Athena, the goddess of wisdom.

Owls are positively the most beautiful of all the birds. I know the WA Birds of Prey have some amazing owls with great personalities.
