This is our first trip to Penang and mummy is feeling excited to bring the kiddos to Penang Bird Park! We reached here early at 9.30am and the place looks quiet and all the birds are mainly inside the cage. It have many section to venture so the first stop is to see the parrots.

While the 2 Geodesic Domes and 2 giant sized Walk-in-Aviaries, keep hundreds of tamed birds which offers priceless memory and exciting moment for visitors, after hand-feeding them, exotic birds ranging from tiny Sunbirds to huge, gigantic 8-foot tall Ostriches frolic in an environment that imitates their natural habitat. Penang Bird Park is particularly proud of its hornbills, sunbirds, and pheasants collection. Penang Bird Park is the bird-park loved by the expert ornithologists as well as for the people of all ages who love birds.

Built in a garden concept, the park boasts of its beautiful landscaping with the impressive collections of hibiscus, orchids,  bamboo, ornamental plant and palm trees. Cascading waterfalls and natural ponds flourish with colourful fishes, lotus and water lilies, creating a home for the free-roaming pelicans, flamingos, swans, egrets, storks, herons and colourful ducks. Observe from the Chinese-style wooden bridges that traverse the water or relax in the little Malay huts that dot the park to enjoy the beauty of nature at play. A cosy air-conditioned restaurant in the park serves delicious local and western food.

Penang Bird Park is also a home to several species of deers including the smallest deer in the world - Mouse-Deers. Giant Arapaima fish, pythons, giant estuarine crocodile, tortoises and other species of wildlife are also exhibited in this park.


We came to another section whereby you need to open a small door to enter this area. We can purchase the FISH food for only RM 1. My kids enjoying throwing it all over. Not only the fish are excited waiting for the food, the birds as well!
