Add a Point to the Map

Jurong Bird Park Singapore, "The World of Living Colors", officially established in January 1971, is the largest bird park in Southeast Asia. Housing over 8000 birds from 600 different species in a 20.2 hectares park, it is a family-oriented destination promising an exhilarating experience for adults and children.

Highlights

The African Waterfall Aviary is a free flight aviary set in a tropical rainforest with the tallest man-made waterfall in the world, standing at 30 meters.

Lory Loft is where one will be able to feed the colorful Lories housed within with a honey and nectar mixture at a cost of S$3 per cup. Note that a suspension bridge connects the entire Lory Loft together so those with a fear of heights may reconsider entering.

Jurong Bird Park has entertaining bird shows at various times; additional cost for this show is at S$18 for adults and S$12 for children.

The Penguin Expedition is an indoor facility with glass-fronted enclosures housing 5 different species of penguins and puffins. Admire them waddling or swimming freely in the glass enclosure, or just huddling around staring back at onlookers.

There are seven different species of owls including the elegant Snowy Owl, the bigheaded Great Gray Owl, and the largest and most powerful Eurasian Eagle Owl at the World of Darkness. This quiet attraction uses a reversal of lighting technology turning day into night and vice-versa. Flash photography is disallowed here.

The Bird Discovery Centre is a small air-conditioned museum facility with detailed exhibits of different bird feathers and eggs; families with kids may consider popping by.

Eateries

For those craving for local cuisine, Hawk Cafe is where the Laksa and Hainanese Chicken Rice are recommended. Tables at this indoor air-conditioned cafe are crafted with details on the different birds of prey so diners may learn something new. Mains here cost from S$6-S$9 and it is opened from 8.30am to 6pm daily.

For visitors preferring American-style cuisine such as burgers, fries, and pastas, the spacious Bongo Burgers restaurant has a breakfast and lunch menu, costing S$6-S$7 and S$10-S$13 respectively. Kids menu are also available from S$6-S$10. For breakfast, the Bongo Grilled toast with maple syrup looks delicious while the Bongo Beef Burger with fries is a house specialty for lunch. Bongo Burgers restaurant opens from 8.30am-6pm daily as well.
