Singapore Jurong Bird Park

The Jurong Bird Park is regarded as the largest open park in the Asia Pacific. It is home to over 600 species of birds. Guests can admire over 8,000 flying creatures at the same time while being entertained and educated about them.

The comical parrot circus and the bird of prey in the King of the Skies show provide lots of entertainment for the entire family. It is fun filled and full of exciting wonders.

At the Pools Amphitheatre the bird shows are filled with both impressive and humorous birds to provide lots of fun especially for children. The birds featured include flamingos, macaws, hornbills and cockatoos. Each visitor that arrives at the park stares in amazement as they observe the birds of prey in action; in the 'Fuji World of Hawks' show!

There is a Penguin Parade enclosure located in a re-modelled Antarctic setting. You can find more that 200 penguins of 5 different species in the setting. In addition, you can find about 50 other sea birds such as the Inca terns and puffins within this same setting. Another eye catching exhibit is the multi coloured Hornbills and Toucans exhibits. This includes the largest collection of Southeast Asian Hornbills in the world.

Within the Southeast Asian Birds Aviary you can find 24 individual aviaries and a main walk-in aviary, 100 plus species of birds from the equatorial jungles of Southeast Asia. In this display the natural equatorial habitat is re modelled with artificially stimulated tropical thunderstorms everyday at noon.

Of probably the most beautiful section of the part lays the Waterfall aviary. You can find more than 1,500 free-flying African birds residing here. The area is and enclosed portion of the park containing a lot of small tropical birds and a magnificent man-made waterfall.

The native bird of Australia, Indonesia and Papua New Guinea will present its wonderful environment Lory loft. When visiting the Lory loft you will be viewing from a tree top level to give the best viewing experience of the Lory's spectular nesting and living habits.

One of the newest additions to the Jurong Bird Park is an all new beakfast program with an entire star-studded bird cast. The programme is referred to as "Pelicans, Parrots and Prate" and occurs at the Songbird Terrace overlooking the Flamingo Lake.

The show starts at around 9.30 am for public entertainment while breakfast is made available from 8 am to 10.30 am. There is still another feature that we didn't speak about that was also recently added to the bird park; The Riverine. It is a simulated natural freshwater river environment with over 20 species of ducks, fishes and turtles.

You can have an absolutely fascinating time while touring the bird park aboard the modern, air-conditioned panorail system. It travels the entire park providing you with a breathtaking sky view of all the offerings. After, you can take another tour on foot by using the footpaths and a map of the park.
