Penang Bird Park is the first and largest bird park in Malaysia. Established in 1988, the RM1.2 million complex is home to over 300 species of birds (150 of which are of local origin) ranging from kingfishers and tiny exotic sunbirds to vulturine guineafowl and huge, gigantic eight ft-tall ostriches.

Located in Seberang Jaya, within the beautifully- landscaped, five-acre Penang Bird Park are two walk-in aviaries and two geodesic-domed enclosures, resembling the birds’ natural habitat. This allows for free roaming pelicans, flamingos, swans, storks mandarin ducks and other kinds of birds.

For those feeling a little peckish after walking around the park, there is a cosy air-conditioned restaurant that serves good local and western food.
