Enter the domain of the wild lorikeets!

Lorikeets are native to the islands of the South Pacific and Australia, and their beaks and agile, four-toed feet make it easy for them to hang upside down and access the hardest to reach flowers. 

the Loft is located in the Islands area of the Zoo, is open:
  • Monday – Friday, 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM
  • Saturday and Sunday, 10:00 AM to 4:30 PM

 At select times you may purchase a small cup of nectar and marvel as lorikeets land on your hand, arm, shoulder and even your head to get a drink of that sweet nectar. Lorikeet Loft is a walk-thru aviary and home to dozens of happy lorikeets.

When available, single cups of nectar are $2.00 and three cups are $5.00. Nectar can be purchased at the Lorikeet Loft aviary.
