Creature Encounters


Meet the playful and inquisitive tropical birds in a vibrant rainbow of colour.

Hosted by the legendary explorer Ms Bonny Voyage or Gentleman of Fortune Captain Jon Voyage, Squawkabout is a rumbustious, romping walkabout puppetry act that explores the Victorian fascination for collecting mixed with the forgotten, tight-lipped Englishness, against the anarchic playful joy of two inquisitive tropical birds. Either the Captain or his wife will be available to answer questions relating to the flora, fauna and topography of the bird’s natural habitat in a vibrant rainbow of colour.

Move from curiosity to friendship as you help the birds explore their surroundings, marvel at their exotic beauty, or make their friendship felt by stepping forward for a bright and brilliant photo. Please remember, they won’t bite but they may decide on being friends forever!
