Birds

At Billabong Zoo, Port Macquarie you will see and hear many species of birds in enclosures throughout our 10 acre wildlife park. You will also see a few of our wild visitors on our koi ponds and in our many trees.  Our resident rooster can be seen anywhere he likes, but he is friendly enough - just inquisitive.
