I visited Melaka Bird Park in March 2018. Here is my review.
Having opened in 2013, this is one of the newer additions to the many attractions in the Ayer Keroh district of Melaka.
According to their display graphic there are 24 different species of bird here including various types of parrot, lory, parakeet, duck, macaw, cockatoo, lorikeet, pigeon and dove. The star of the show is the Indian Peacock showing off his magnificent plumage.
Basically the park is one large aviary under cover of a vast net held up by lofty metal towers. There is a high canopy walkway proving a bird’s eye view of the park. There is a lift to the canopy if you are not able to climb the stairs or if you find the stairs blocked by screeching macaws.
The birds here are really tame and accustomed to humans. If you buy some bird food the lory and parrots will literally eat from the palm of your hand as well as perch on your shoulders and head. Kids will certainly enjoy this place.
This bird park is not as big as KL Bird Park and the vegetation is not as lush but it does mean that the birds are easier to spot. It is also a lot cheaper than KL Bird Park.
Other facilities here include a restaurant, a souvenir kiosk, a herb garden, a man-made waterfall and, outside the park entrance, a boardwalk and a viewing tower (which was closed for repairs).
Open Daily 9 am to 6 pm.
