  • See how a butterfly sees via a specialised UV light display area where you'll be set aglow in ultraviolet radiation

If you want to see rare butterflies in their natural surroundings, Kuranda's rainforest habitat is the perfect place. There's a chance to see local species like the electric blue Ulysses and the green and yellow Cairns birdwing fluttering around freely.

See experts at work, breeding butterflies and explaining why caterpillars transform into their next state. Feeders are also spread through the aviary so there are loads of opportunities to get up close to butterflies while they're dining!
