Australian Butterfly Sanctuary

Kuranda,

Be surrounded by 1500 free-flying tropical butterflies in the Australian Butterfly Sanctuary; Australia's largest butterfly flight aviary.

Wander around the enchanted rainforest aviary and spot majestic butterflies, including the vibrant green Cairns Birdwing Butterfly and iconic Monarch.

Join a complimentary guided aviary tour to learn more about the butterflies, their behaviour and life cycles. Watch a stunning daily butterfly release and make sure you make a wish!

It is recommended to wear white, red or pink to increase the chance of the butterflies landing on you.

Join your guide on a visit to the breeding laboratory, which houses up to 4,000 caterpillars. This educational experience shows what goes on behind the scenes and shows caterpillars in all of their life stages.

View butterfly wings through a microscope or venture into the UV room to experience butterfly vision.

Join a complimentary guided food plant walk, which takes a look at the caterpillar food plants grown on-site.

Located in the heart of Kuranda Village, the Australian Butterfly Sanctuary is an iconic, all-weather attraction.

Popular with children, couples and single travellers alike, it’s easy to see why the Australian Butterfly Sanctuary is ranked as one of Trip Advisors' best Kuranda attractions.
