Southern Aviary

Elements area



Scope note(s)

  • The Southern Aviary of 1905 is the largest of the Zoo's early aviaries. It was an early attempt to provide a natural environment for birds, giving them space for free flight. The landscaping of artificial rockwork and ponds, with mature willows, was a reordering of what had been the Southern Ponds from about 1860. The Southern Aviary was demolished circa 2008 for the Giant Tortoises.
