Be sure to wear something bright and let these beautiful creatures flutter all over you!
Butterfly house in Kuranda village is a must do experience
A wonderful experience for the whole family! This was enjoyed by all 3 kids and adults. I would highly recommend if you are visiting Kuranda. It was peaceful and if you stand quietly the butterflies will come and land on you much to the enjoyment of the children.
100% recommend everyone go and visit! The place is truly magical.
The Australian Butterfly Sanctuary is such a beautiful place to visit with the whole family. We had a wonderful time exploring. As you walk through the butterfly garden, you can't help but smile as the butterflies flutter all around you. Having them land on you and seeing them so close would warm even the coldest heart.
This place was surprisingly amazing
This place was surprisingly amazing, it was better than expected, the range of butterflies that they had and the colours were amazing!. Learnt so much about butterflies and how they breed. I would say very worth the visit while your spending time in Cairns.
