Feed the world’s most dangerous bird.

Don’t be fooled by the colourful Cassowary’s striking blue neck or soft feathers, this deadly animal has dinosaur-like feet, a razor-sharp beak and in-built helmet on its head.

Get up close to this incredible bird from behind the safety of a barrier and help feed it morning tea before enjoying an education talk from zoo keepers who know these birds best.

Zoo entry not included.
