Home of the black cockatoo

Create a special memory of your holiday by experiencing the rich sounds and colours of our truly unique Australian flora and fauna. You will be amazed by the abundant wildlife at The Feathered Nest - make sure you take a leisurely stroll around the gardens and learn about the birds and animals attracted to the area.

At the heart of the property are our purpose-built enclosures designed to showcase our collection of breathtaking Australian black cockatoos. Many of these cockatoos are rarer species which you are unlikely to see anywhere else but at The Feathered Nest.

Each day we give you the opportunity to help feed the cockatoos, including preparing the food and assisting in the enclosure. Gordon, our resident black cockatoo expert, is on hand to answer your questions and take you through the special breeding program he runs at The Feathered Nest.

The property also contains a rich variety of other native wetland birds including grebes, cormorants, brolgas, ducks and the Australian black swan. As you explore the lush, tropical grounds you will be able to see them in their natural habitat and hopefully gain a special appreciation for these beautiful creatures.

Of course we have many non-feathered friends too such as kangaroos, wallabies, turtles and fish—many of which you will see from the comfort of your private deck.



The Feathered Nest is teeming with local wildlife, including species native to this part of Australia.

We have created a list of wildlife you can expect to see.
