Enjoy a fun family day out among hundreds of live butterflies and moths in our tropical butterfly house.

The exhibition includes a kaleidoscope of colourful species ethically sourced from Central and South America, Africa and Asia.

Follow the trail through a tropical habitat of flowers, vines and foliage. As butterflies fly overhead, you’ll pass chomping caterpillars, glistening chrysalises and busy feeding stations.

Kids can discover fascinating butterfly facts and use a magnifier to admire the intricate details and diversity of these beautiful creatures.

Butterfly house highlights include:
watching a butterfly emerge from its chrysalis and unfold its wings for the first time
searching for caterpillars hidden in the foliage, at different life stages and sizes
seeing butterflies feed on nectar and fruit
observing butterflies interact with each other
receiving butterfly-friendly tips and advice from the Butterfly House team
