  • Lots of butterflies. Wasn't expensive. Nice stop on a long road trip. Cafe was good .. Had scones and coffee for $7.50 and there's a little shop with trinkets 
  • Lovely welcoming venue. Always something new to see. Good coffee, gluten free options available on the menu. Nice range in the gift shop. Always plenty of bugs and butterflies on display and attentive staff to answer our questions. Great spot!
  • Haven't been in yet (we got there 3.30 & they close 4.00pm) but we were filled in totally by the lovely lady behind the counter - locals get in free with their visitors!! And she gave us a 10% discount voucher! Lovely clean toilets and done up by the new owners. We're going back today!!
  • Butterflys are amazing, maze was great.
  • Great display of butterflies. Staff most helpful, but I stumped one when I asked if the butterfly has the same DNA as the caterpillar (FYI: Yes, it does, just activated differently to make wings etc). Be careful when taking photos as the humidity fogged my camera lens. Do try their scones; they’re the best we had in NSW and Canberra. We went back to have more!
  • BEAUTIFUL, this place is for everyone. I went with my son (11) & daughter (8), sadly my husband couldn't go with us....the butterflies were just beautiful, they fly around & can land on you. Both my children had them on their hands & heads & one even landed on my head. Was relaxing & refreshing. We saw a butterfly hatch & lay eggs. The staff were informative & friendly. You can stay for as long as you want. There is also a Maze outside & a lovely Cafe. We had yummy milkshakes from the Cafe & after that we went back into the Butterfly Enclosure again. Its very warm inside the enclosure but it needs to be......We will go back, but my husband will join us next time. Great place to visit.
