    Too many $ when compared to similar and better we have seen in New Zealand. There were lots of butterflys but not a lot of variety.  more »

  • Such a unique and wonderful experience. I never imagined that one could walk through a heated glasshouse that is home to a few hundred beautiful butterflies and some quail. Friendly staff / volunteers were willing to answer wuestions and there was adequate written info available. Definitely worth a visit.
  • A great place to visit if you're short on time. Check out the butterflies and stick insects which our girls aged 13 & 7 loved!! You can easily fit it in with other outings for the day. We were done within the hour even with a trip through the maze. They do have a cafe there though we didn't try it.
  • Great place for young family. Heaps of butterflies that happily land on you if you are still. My two girls loved it. Was a bit picey for entry for a one stop attraction. Cafe is well priced and has fresh scones and jam and hot chocolates.
  • Excellent place to visit! Good prices. The maze was great for kids and there was a such a great range of butterflies in the glasshouse. Scones and coffee were great for us too 😉
  • After waiting inside the barn for a while the butterflies came to land on us. It was wondrous for our 4yr old daughter. The gift shop has lots of related souvenirs and toys and the maze was good too. Staff friendly.
