Overview

Highlights

  • Watch over 1200 native butterfly species take flight in this indoor sanctuary in a rainforest habitat
  • Take a tour of the breeding laboratory and gain a deeper understanding of a butterfly's metamorphosis
  • See how a butterfly sees via a specialised UV light display area where you'll be set aglow in ultraviolet radiation

Description

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!
