What
Jurong Bird Park is the first wildlife park in Singapore and the biggest of its kind in Asia. It spreads across 20 hectares of verdant greenery on Jurong Hill and is home to more than 5,000 birds.

The bird sanctuary opened its doors in 1971 and is managed by Wildlife Reserves Singapore.

Why
Jurong Bird Park offers the rare opportunity to interact with 400 species of birds in a park that is closest to their natural habitat.

Walk into Waterfall Aviary, the park’s biggest free flight aviary, that shelters 600 birds and features a 30-metre waterfall.

Visit the Asian birds at Wings of Asia. This zone has 500 birds including endangered species like the black-winged starling, the Bali Mynah, and the Luzon bleeding-heart dove.

Feed lories at the 9-storey Lory Loft! The loft is designed to reflect the vibe of the Australian outback. Walk across suspended bridges as you go around feeding birds at the aviary.

Be transported to Antarctica through the Penguin Coast! Watch adorable penguins swim in the water and waddle on ice at the indoor, climate-controlled zone.

Explore other attractions and learn more about breeding and conservation at the research center.
