    Butterflies Butterflies everywhere! What an amazing Sanctuary and so beautiful inside to walk around. Take your time and move slowly through the Sanctuary and you will see more than you could ever imagine. So great to see the Butterflies being looked after so well. You will leave with a better respect for these colourful and gentle beauties.

    Despite it being busy and Covid rules (and this was managed well) we found our visit to be a delight. After chasing butterflies all around Nth Qld for photos, they were all here, flitting around and providing us with so many photo opportunities. So many butterflies including lots of Ulysses butterflies right in front of us, many landing on us whilst we were wandering. A very enjoyable experience, for adults and kids.

    There were so many different colours & shapes of butterflies. It was so cool to have them flying around you. Take your time to soak up the experience, however if you're on a tour make sure you keep an eye on the time. My teenage daughters loved it just as much as I did. And the staff were friendly too.

    I would thoroughly recommend a visit to this Sanctuary if visiting Kuranda village. As well as getting up close to a wide range of species, the centre is a good educational experience as well. Your ticket lasts all day, so you can pop in and out any time. Great work guys!

    A lovely little butterfly house with many butterflies (unfortunately they are having real trouble with the big blue Ulysses butterflies so none there, though we spotted a few around Kuranda Village). Plenty of birdsongs and other varieties and some interesting information and trivia along the way. The Goliath moths in the separate enclosure were something to see, along with the caterpillars and cocoons showing the lifecycle stages. A touch pricey for the time it takes but a good experience.

    This was a really cool little sanctuary to visit. It was incredible to see so many butterflies in one spot. Here, you can learn about butterflies, and also learn about the process they go through from caterpillar to butterfly. Definitely worth seeing while you’re in Kuranda!
