You've got to see it to believe it!
The Trained Alexandrines have been performing faithfully for 15 years here at Parrots In Paradise, and prior to that we traveled all over for 5 years.
They have happily worked for many bus groups and visitors over the years. In that time we used positive reinforcement, rewarding them with praise and treats after a trick. Our parrots were never punished when they did not perform.
Knowing the birds are having a ball is great fun for the young and old. The bird's ability to solve puzzles and evidence of cognitive thought has to be seen to be believed.
But time has taken it's toll on not only the parrots but also on the humans.
So it was decided to do one final show for a professional vidographer in order to capture all of the show in spite of our losing one of our parrot team to a stroke and another to cataracts.
The Videographer was able to cobble in the missing performers tricks thanks to old videos.
So now when you visit you get the show in it's entirety. Nothing is missed.
We can do nothing about Lena who was taken by the stroke. But Kelele, who has cataracts will, once he is fully blind, will be given an eye operation, because this bird gave faithfully of himself for 20 years, and he will likely live at least the same again, so he deserves to be able to see in that time. So we are saving to get the $4000 for his operation.

Our Sanctuary has had an upgrade
Anytime Bird Show:
We have gone to great expense to get a professional videographer to film the full show.
You can now watch the show whilst relaxing and enjoying the very best Devonshire tea on the Sunshine Coast.
Until now if you wanted to see the birds perform live, you had to gather a group of 10 people or more. OR join an existing booking. NOW, because it has become a professional video, anyone and everyone can come in and see the show, as many times as they like.
On your way down to see the show and the tea area you can see "Hall of Fame" made up of all the props used in the show that you are able to view.
And we now offer Walk About hand held Audio Guides, if you prefer you can have a printed copy of the audio version, you can make your own way around our feathered residents homes. (Children must be supervised)
Larger free flight area:
The Freedom Flight area has been extended and you will be able to feed and enjoy the cheeky company of the birds landing on you for their treats. We do ask that studs and delicate jewelry not be warn in this area, these birds love diamonds and gold! Also, please leave backpacks, bags etc. securely at reception before entering the freedom flight the birds love to bite buckles, shoulder straps etc. Shoulder Covers are provided for protection if required.
Down at the Verandahs Cafe we have set up a real treat Devonshire Cream teas/coffee with fresh hot scones jam and cream, and cold drinks purchased at the reception. Please order when making your booking.
We will still require everyone to book prior to coming in so we can have the correct number of staff on hand
As we receive no financial help from the government, we do our best to fund the care, food and vet costs by Boarding birds for folks who are going on holiday.
We also provide Grooming, like wing and toenail clipping. And Advise-if needed.
We offer visitors a Behind the Scenes Tour that gives the opportunity for up-close contact with the friendly and funny birds, we give you treats to feed the birds, and you will have heaps of photo opportunities.
