Dinosaur Descendants

Go back in time to the age of the dinosaurs into the prehistoric land of Gondwanaland, when all the land on Earth was one large continent. Be intrigued by the similar traits that these Ratites or Flightless Birds share with what is said to be ancestors of the great Dinosaur.

Meet the unique, blue-headed Double-Wattled Cassowary with a soft and spongy casque that they use as a tool to forage for food, and as a weapon against rivals. It is also believed that the casque may be useful for them to receive sounds or to communicate. Its neighbour, the Ostrich, is the world's largest, heaviest and fastest-running bird with the biggest eyeballs. It also wins, wings down, with the largest eggs in the world. Over here, you’ll also see the Emu and the Marabou Stork.

Dig In & Have Fun

Become a paleontologist and go on an archeological dig to discover the fossils and relics hidden within the sand at Dino Dig.

Learn more about these vintage birds at Ostrich Feeding on weekends and public holidays at 1.40pm or better yet, sign up for a personal guided Bird's Eye Tour.
