Cairns: Australian Butterfly Sanctuary

1. Cairns: Australian Butterfly Sanctuary

The Australian Butterfly Sanctuary provides a world-class wildlife experience in the heart of Kuranda. The all-weather experience is home to over 1,500 magnificent tropical butterflies. All butterflies in the sanctuary are local rainforest species, while the undisputed stars are the fluoro green Cairns Birdwings. Wear something bright (red, white, or hot pink are best) and let these beautiful creatures flutter all over you. Enjoy a self-guided tour of the aviary. Learn to identify each of the butterfly species, as the guides explain a butterfly’s life cycle and its behavior.  Entry also includes a self-guided food plant walk, which educates about the food plants grown on-site that are used to feed the caterpillars.  Visit the breeding laboratory, which houses up to 4,000 caterpillars. An opportunity to view first-hand the breeding laboratory through special viewing windows, where you will see the caterpillars in their varying stages of development. Watch as the laboratory staff collects eggs daily and “hand-raise” the caterpillars right through to the chrysalis stage, until they are released as beautiful butterflies into the sanctuary.

What people are saying about Australian Butterfly Sanctuary

Our guide was very experienced and gave es multiple details of the life of those beautiful butterflies. We also saw the eggs of the butterfly and saw how she dropped them off on a flower. We visited the breeding room so that we can get a picture of how is a butterfly develops from an egg. It was lovely to spend time in this incredible garden. Please pay attention it is quite humid due to there is a roof protection for keeping the butterflies not to escape. So you need to prepare a bottle of water! Enjoy it!

Wear something bright and colourful. You might have butterflies stop on you.
