Jurong Bird Park
Opening Hours: 8.30am - 5.30pm
Charming visitors the world over since taking flight in 1971, Jurong Bird Park is one of the most renowned bird sanctuaries with some of the largest free-flying aviaries in the world. In habitats that mirror their naturalistic environments, Jurong Bird Park is home to the colours of the world, as Asia's largest bird park with a collection of more than 5,000 birds across 400 species. Our park and its line-up of award-winning exhibits, located at the west-end of Singapore, offers 20.2 hectares of exploratory landscape and gives visitors the opportunity to meet and interact with our feathered residents.
Hike into the wondrous and largest walk-in aviary, the Waterfall Aviary that houses over 600 birds as well as a 30-metre high waterfall. As these small birds flutter freely around the surroundings of over 100 plant species, enjoy close encounters with these birds during daily feeding sessions and for your chance to see the elusive crested guinea fowl and the iridescent starling, turaco and roller.
Go down under to yet another world's largest, the 9-storey high Lory Loft, the biggest lory flight aviary. Here, you'll meet our Australian natives, the friendliest birds at the Park. Experience an up-close feeding frenzy as you walk across the suspended bridges with a cup of nectar mix in your hand. You'll soon find bright and chirpy lory and lorikeets flocking around you, with some even nestling up to you on your shoulders! Head over to Jungle Jewels, the rich South American tropical rainforest and be greeted by the striking toucan. Eye the treetops and look out for the brightly coloured tanager and red-crested cardinal.
Head off on an expedition at Penguin Coast and see our residents of the Antarctic housed in an impressive 'explorer ship'. Get a panoramic view of the penguins as they dive and torpedo through the waters. Outdoors, meet their tropical cousins, the African penguins and get your chance to feed them during at the Penguin Encounter sessions. Our open concept Flamingo Lake is another must-see where hundreds of greater and lesser flamingos strut around one of the most picturesque sights in the Park. Nearby, Pelican Cove is home to the world's most comprehensive collection of pelican species. The specially-constructed underwater viewing gallery gives you the opportunity to observe how pelicans dip and dive for fish. Our efforts in breeding and conservation have not gone unnoticed, having been awarded international accolades in this area. The Breeding & Research Centre (BRC), opened to the public for the first time in June 2012 since its inception in 1988, gives you a behind-the-scenes look into how we take care of eggs and chicks that are endangered or have sometimes been abandoned. For another glimpse into the Park's success in breeding and conservation, visit the Hornbill & Toucan Aviary.
There's also lots of fun in store for children. At Birdz of Play, soak in and get wild in this bird-themed playground with wet and dry playzones for families with kids of all ages. Toddlers and kids can wade in the shallow pool and zoom down water slides, while older kids can revel with squirt sprays and wait under the giant tipping bucket for a humongous splash! At the dry zone, they'll experience flights of fun with the flying fox, and tiny tots will find endless enjoyment on the see-saws, swings and slides. And for those who just want to chill out, the multi-purpose pavilion is where you can dig in to a refreshing Birdz of Play Cafe ice cream treat.
If you've never thought that birds could be entertaining, we'll change your mind here. Flock over to our newest show the High Flyers Show, featuring a star-studded lineup of our feathered friends where you too can get into the action. Then tuck in to a sumptuous Asian buffet lunch at Songbird Terrace and enjoy the Lunch with Parrots show in a cosy setting that overlooks the beautiful Flamingo Lake. For free-flying, heart-thumping action, do not miss the Kings of the Skies show where the ancient sport of falconry is demonstrated by our hosts and the ferocious flying predators.
Hop onboard our guided trams or take a leisurely stroll around the Park and explore the lush jungles. You'll be swept off your feet in our colourful paradise of unforgettable experiences and personal encounters with our feathered friends. We look forward to welcoming you soon!
