“Kookaburra sits in the old gum tree
Merry, merry king of the bush is he
Laugh, Kookaburra! Laugh, Kookaburra!”


Our kookaburra encounters let you get up close to this iconic Aussie bird and if you tell him a joke, you might have a great laugh together.

In this special encounter, you go inside the kookaburra enclosure and meet Wafer and Pretzel. The birds will fly to your hand and you are able to take photos of the birds. You will learn lots of interesting facts and share a laugh or two.
