When you enter the Lory Garden, you will receive a warm welcome from sixty coloured small parrots. These are the so-called lories. Their enthusiastic fluttering makes for an unforgettable experience. In addition to impressing you, they actually only want one more thing, namely to be fed. Enter the garden with a small feed container and they will land on your arm, shoulder or even head to feast on their favourite meal.
These clownish little birds are sometimes called ‘Rainbow Lories’ or ‘Blue Mountain Lories’. The name refers to the origin of the lories: the Blue Mountains in Australia and Tasmania. This origin has been reproduced in the Lory Garden. The garden features a babbling brook, rock formations, and tropical nature. It is also decorated with enormous murals created by the artist Merel Visser, depicting Ayers Rock in Australia, among other vistas.
Do you favour a bird-free visit to the Orchideeën Hoeve? In that case, you can explore the bird-free route circumnavigating the aviary of the Lory Garden. This route enables you to maintain eye contact with your group, while still enjoying the garden.
Note that dogs are not allowed in the aviary of the Lory Garden.
