Our favourite part of Ipswich Nature Centre would have to be the large bird aviary. Upon entering the aviary you are greeted with a stunning rainforest display where you can see beautiful birds of every colour.

Another popular part of the centre that we particularly enjoyed is the barn yard section, where you can get right up close to see the animals including bulls, chickens and goats.

How Long Does It Take?

We recommend allowing at least an hour to walk around the nature centre and see all the different animal enclosures. However for the best experience, we recommend staying the day and having a picnic in the nearby Queens Park, before going for a casual stroll through the picture perfect Nerima Gardens.
