Background

Every day of the year could feel like a holiday, especially if you make your way to Mitchell Park. Named after Sir Charles Bullen Hugh Mitchell, the park was established in the early half of the century as an ostrich farm.  

Today Mitchell Park has a whole host of small animals and birds for you to visit, including crocodiles, buck, raccoons, cranes, monkeys and tortoises. There is a walk-through aviary that allows you to get close-up views of many beautiful bird varieties.
