Detailing a butterfly’s life cycle and behaviour. Be sure to wear something bright (we recommend red or hot pink). And let these beautiful butterflies fly around you as you walk through. See colours through the eyes of a butterfly with our UV display.

The Fairy Garden

In addition the Fairy Garden is like walking into a miniature fairy tale. See small species of butterflies amongst magical fairies, miniature scenes and amongst native and non native plant species.

However the Fairy Garden is in a separate section to the rest of our aviary. Built to showcase smaller butterflies. It is home to the Grass Yellow Butterfly. Keeping the light as natural as possible, this small aviary is covered by a very light shade cloth. This way, the butterflies can feed on natural flowers rather than nectar.

The Museum

Moreover the Australian butterfly museum has a display of 584 different butterflies and moths.Species of all colours, shapes, sizes and varieties.

The museum gives you the rare opportunity to view up close the different species. From around the world. Including Europe, South America, Asia, the Northern Hemisphere and Africa. 

In conclusion Australian butterfly world is a place you can go to and just relax and be with nature.
