Australian Butterfly Sanctuary Guided Aviary Tour

You will be taken by one of our trained guides around our rainforest aviary. describing the behaviour and life cycle of a butterfly. Make sure to dress brightly (we suggest red or hot pink). And as you pass through, let these lovely butterflies flutter around you. With our UV display, you can see colours via a butterfly’s eyes.

The Fairy Garden

The Fairy Garden is also like entering a small fairy tale. View tiny butterfly species amidst enchanting fairy, miniature settings, and both native and alien plant species.
The Fairy Garden, however, is located in a different area of our aviary than the rest of it. constructed to display tiny butterflies. The Grass Yellow Butterfly calls it home. This little aviary has a very thin shade cloth covering it to keep the lighting as natural as possible. The butterflies can then consume real flowers rather than artificial ones like nectar.

The Museum

Moreover 584 different butterflies and moths are on display at the Australian Butterfly Museum. species come in a wide range of hues, forms, and sizes.
But you get a unique opportunity to see many species up close at the museum. from different countries. Including the Northern Hemisphere, Africa, South America, Asia, and Europe.
