    If you enjoy butterflys there are plenty here. There is a breeding lab and emerging nets for the fresh ones to come out. All the butterflies are breed on site and there is a room with hundreds of specimens from around the world.

    The butterfly sanctuary was nice, but it wasn't great. It was advertised as being the biggest in Australia, which is all fine and well except that there weren't enough butterflies to fill it! It was interesting to see some of the breeding areas, but lets face it, we were there to see the butterflies and this area was sorely lacking. However, the staff were very friendly and happy, and the price was reasonable, so overall it was ok, but not great.
