Boomerang Island is more than just an exhibit. 

It is a guest experience that will give you the chance to get up close and personal with budgies, cockatiels, Princess of Wales parrots, superb parrots and kookaburras. 

We can’t wait for you to visit! We know you’ll be captivated as you walk through this 1,200-square-foot aviary full of friendly, colorful, free-flying birds. For just $2 you’ll receive a small food stick to help us feed our flock of feathered friends. 

To get their fair share of food, you’ll find the birds gently perching on your arm to eat right from your hand.

After having fun in the exhibit, we hope you will walk away with a greater appreciation for and knowledge about these birds and birds throughout the world. While these critters may seem like the perfect pet for you, we want to emphasize that owning exotic birds like these is a tremendous commitment that takes experience, patience, and plenty of time. Boomerang Island is the perfect place for everyone to experience these wonderful birds without the immense responsibility it takes to own one.
