Australian Butterfly Sanctuary

The Australian Butterfly Sanctuary is the largest butterfly light aviary and exhibit in Australia and the southern hemisphere – an all-weather experience in the heart of Kuranda. Home to over 1500 magnificent tropical butterflies, you’ll be enchanted by the aerial dynamics of these elusive wonders of nature as you wander through the aviary’s rainforest gardens. Guided aviary tours are available at no extra cost throughout the day, detailing a butterfly’s life cycle and behaviour. Be sure to wear something bright (red or white) and let these beautiful and colourful creatures flutter all over you as you wonder through. As well as walking through the aviary, your visit now includes a “behind the scenes” tour of the breeding laboratory which houses 4000 caterpillars. This interesting and educational experience provides an opportunity to view the caterpillars in their varying stages of development. After the tour, see butterflies from around the world in the museum exhibit.
