Our purpose-built Education Centre is an amazing, octagonal structure, with an inspiring steel eagle sculpture by Keith Smith adorning the top of its glass turret. The Centre has been designed to not just fit into the natural bush setting, but to captivate and hold the imagination of young and old alike.
Inside there are surprises as well, with one-way glass viewing windows to three aviaries. These windows are set into three walls fitted with sound, acoustic grade insulation. This allows viewing of birds with appropriate temperaments at close quarters. The aviaries themselves, where birds are undergoing rehabilitation before being released back into their natural habitat, are not accessible.
