Breakfast With The Birds

The Curlew Café is home to the famous “Breakfast With The Birds”

The original Breakfast With The Birds has been a FNQ visitor must-do for over two decades for those intrepid travelers looking for a breakfast experience with a difference.

In early 2022, our team is excited to be bringing you an ALL NEW Breakfast With The Birds Experience. Bookings are required for this new interactive dining opportunity, as seating is limited. The Curlew Café team will be dishing up delicious Breakfast feast platters for each reservation.

Diners will be seated banquet style in our newly built Koala Habitat, located undercover within the Café. Seasonal delights from the kitchen will be served, including eggs of the day, seasonal tropical antipasto, goodies from the grill, bakery treats, teas and coffee. Dine with our wildlife whilst getting a chance to feed our koalas and birds, and chat with our keepers about their passion for wildlife and conservation.

Breakfast With The Birds also includes entry to our wildlife park, which includes all wildlife presentations, access to our five habitats; SavannahWoodlandsWetlandsRainforest and Nocturnal, and a five day re-entry pass for park admission.

Breakfast With The Birds is from 8am until 9am. Cost is additional to admission and must be pre-booked.  Please be at the park admissions area by 7:45 am to check in for the 8am experience start.

Strict start times do apply for this activity, and we are unable to extend the overall experience for late arrivals. Dietary requirements must be advised at the time of booking, as we may not be able to accommodate on the day without notice. Any late guest arrival meal requirements will be handled to the best of our ability. Terms and conditions apply – click here

Breakfast with the birds is open daily. This activity must be booked by 12:00pm the day prior, and is subject to availability at time of booking.
