Gili Meno Bird Park Resort

Mini Bird Park on Gili Meno

The Gili Meno Bird Park Resort is one of the main attractions on Gili Meno, the second and quietest island-hop destination among the three Gili Islands, north of Lombok. Centrally positioned on the island and adjoining an affordable hotel and backpacker’s dorm house, the bird park houses an aviary that is home to a collection of exotic birds.

Known locally as ‘Taman Burung Gili Meno’, The Gili Meno Bird Park Resort offers a simple but fascinating tour for all ages. One should not expect to see a zoo or a sanctuary on the scale of the Bali Bird Park, but what it lacks in size, it makes up for in uniqueness, considering the barren nature of Gili Meno and its limited land bound sightseeing options.

In the lobby is a small bar serving refreshments and cold beer, manned by friendly staff. With a ticket price of only IDR 50,000, the bird park offers an inexpensive tour through a well-planned garden of winding paths and lush greenery. 

Among the impressive birds, you’ll see are eclectus parrots, fire-tufted barbets, parakeets, peacocks, ospreys and eagles, mute swans, wild pheasants, Nicobar pigeons, wild turkeys, rainbow lorikeets, and many more. The combination of different settings - including ponds and pens with leafy gardens - make for a pleasurable walk and informative posters on each stop let you know more about the species. 

At the beginning of your park tour, you will be greeted by a pair of perching scarlet macaws that roam free in the gardens. Their bright red, blue and yellow plumage serves as a welcoming sight. Further in is a pen where a fat Komodo dragon basks. Next, a saltwater croc. Then a barking deer. There was some maintenance work underway on some enclosures and water gardens at the time of our visit, but the animals were in good condition.

The birds are the private collection of New Zealand bird enthusiast Percy Burlace, who developed the park since 1999. Much of the story behind the establishment of the Gili Meno Bird Park Resort is presented through clippings and posters in the information centre at the entrance. Information on the birds kept here is provided through wall charts and diagrams. You’ll find some quirky misplaced objects here too, such as a whale jawbone that was washed up on Meno the time the resort opened.
