New Feathered Friends interactive bird show at Australian Reptile Park

Tawny frogmouth at the Australian Reptile Park

Iconic birds of prey, parrots and cockatoos will be demonstrating their aerial acrobatics in a new Feathered Friends interactive bird show at the Australian Reptile Park in July.

Taking place daily on the park grasslands, Feathered Friends will feature Barn Owls, Red Tailed Black Cockatoos, Masked Owls, Tawny Frogmouths, Boobook Owls, Long-billed Corellas and Australia’s largest bird of prey, the Wedge-tailed Eagle. Adding to the Aussie fl ock will be a Blue and Gold Macaw from South America.

A real hero of the show is Giselle the Barn Owl, who has made appearances on primetime television shows for her beauty and skill. Giselle will demonstrate her natural ability to soar, swoop, dive and manoeuvre like an aerial acrobat, before returning to land on her handler’s glove. Feathered Friends is also an educational show, allowing guests to learn and understand the lifecycle and habitat of the birds, who have all had different backgrounds in their raising, to form a natural bond with their handlers. Feathered Friends will take place daily during the July school holidays at the Australian Reptile Park.
