Boasting over 5,000 birds of 400 different species in a spacious park environment, Jurong Bird Park hosts some of the largest aviaries in the world.

Highlights include:

Bird interactions: Lorikeet feeding is possible all day in the Lory Loft aviary. Penguin, flamingo and ostrich feeding can be done at certain times, or you can lunch with parrots in one of the Park's restaurants. There are also many educational opportunities with keeper talks at various enclosures throughout the day. You can check the current schedule when you buy your ticket.

Owl House: The 'World of Darkness' exhibition contains some stunning owl species, including the Snowy Owl, Malay Fish Owl, Eurasian Eagle Owl, Barn Owl, Great Grey Owl and Boobook Owl. It's also a quiet, cool place if you want to escape the heat.
