About us

The Award Winning On the Perch Aviaries Gifts Cafe has become a ‘must see’ on the NSW Sapphire Coast with a focus on avian education and conservation. We have six exhibits (including four walk-in aviaries) set up as regional habitats. We also have a ‘Chicken Run’ for the little and big kids.

With more than 80 species of bird on display, you can learn about birds from Australia and around the world. Interact with the birds in our walk-in aviaries. Meet the Keeper at 11am & 1pm. Find the perfect gift at ‘The Bower’. Enjoy ‘Brood’, the cafe with a difference. Immerse yourself in nature.
