The Edward Youde Aviary (尤德觀鳥園) is a 3,000-square-metre (32,000 sq ft) aviary built over a natural valley at the southern corner of Hong Kong Park, which is located in Central at the bottom of the north eastern slope of Victoria Peak in Hong Kong. The Edward Youde Aviary was opened to the public in September 1992 and managed by the Urban Council. The aviary, largest in Southeast Asia, is named after the late Sir Edward Youde, the Governor of Hong Kong from 1982 to 1986.
The valley is bounded by an east-facing slope fully covered with natural vegetation and a west-facing slope previously occupied by a barracks. It has a highest point of 46.5 metres (153 ft) and a lowest point of 30 metres (98 ft) above the valley floor.

Beautiful place, the birds are gorgeous and some of them are interactive. Best of all, it is free!

Free admission and definitely worth checking out - very cool birds and just a relaxing stroll after/before the peak tram trip.

A little paradise hidden among buildings inside Hong Kong park. Impressive selection of various bird species can be seen here. A place well-thought, well-constructed. From children to adults, it is nice place to hang out.

Located in Hong Kong Park, wants a little ascent to reach the entrance. It is a free aviary with many tropical birds, definitely worth the visit.

Free entrance. Good for a short walk. Stairs up was tiring thought

Worth a visit if you're in Hong Kong Park. Free entry.

An amazing canopy tucked away in HK park. There are a great variety here with the Java / parakeets being the most friendly. Don't be surprised if you find yourself inches away from a bird 🐦

Hong Kong Park is a great place to stretch your legs after a long flight and the Avery is so relaxing. It’s lovely.

Edward Youde Aviary is build on a slope with the entrance and the exit at respectively about 80m and 45m above sea-level. The tour path is designed with traffic in unidirectional and it is accessible by wheelchair. In entering the gate house, there is a notice board showing the latest kind of birds in the aviary. After crossing the turnstile, free leaflet about the Edward Youde Aviary is available. Please be advised to put on a cap or hat to protect from bird droppings as birds are flying freely above you. Staff is present in the cleaning up the environment. It is advisable to bring along with a pair of binocular. Be patient, you might have the chance of close encounter with the birds as they might sometime stand on the hand rails.

Love this place. A hidden gem. You can experience the birds upclose (if they like you). Close by the long queue for the tram up to the peak (which is more fun to walk up to)

A decently sized aviary with many different types of birds roaming the trees. Most if the path is elevated above the floor with water running beneath you. It makes for a very natural scene below. Also enterance is free.

Excellent aviary. So many birds to see and the place is so clean.

Loved this place. It's big and there are lots of birds - many are endangered and listed on CITES. They have feeding stations very close to the walkways and the birds will come and feed anlh a metre or so from people - a great photo opportunity.

I was quite excited when I saw this from the vantage point. I quickly went but found that they closed at 5pm so I wasn't able to go into the walk in aviary. I was able to quickly look at the small aviary though and that was quite nice.

A must see in Hong Kong, godd place to come with your kids as park in general is nice, even if you don't like birds :)
