Great entertainment from the owner. Good food and coffee, enjoy wandering around looking at the interesting bits and pieces. We didn't look at the Butterflies as we ran out of time. Will be back for a longer visit.

We visited the butterfly farm on the way home from the litchfield national park as we thought it would be cool to go to and wanted to stop to have a refreshing drink before heading back to darwin. We ordered our drinks and proceeded to find a seat. When we say we were asked if we were part of a... More

This is a unique accomodation choice not just because of the decor in the rooms but because of the relaxed friendly and 'honest' vibe! The rooms are a good size, comfortable (although perhaps not as clean as they could be) and have the all important air conditioning!!! The ensuite, in particular the shower was huge!! The farm has a variety... More

One night stay with husband and 12 year old. Chris was kind enough to let us book in early after a long flight from Borneo then a drive to this location. Was great and thanks Chris. After a sleep we enjoyed a swim and Buley water holes. Later dinner in the restaurant with fresh salad greens straight from the garden.... More

Enthusiastic host and team were very helpful. Limited menu for dinner but great food. Lunch looked pretty good. Accommodation was spacious and the bathroom a delight. A little quirky in decoration which was fun. Kids would love it. Pleasant surprise in lush surroundings.

Working construction in Batchelor was a pleasure because I stayed at the butterfly farm. Amazing rooms with showers you could play tennis in. Great meals with the freshest salad. Although the highlight would have to be chris and his team, they have great energy and make you feel so welcome.

Thank you Chris and partner and staff for creating such a wonderful place!! I am honored to step into your magical little world. Really grateful that this little place started from a little idea/dream and blossomed into a lovely, trippy, heavenly oasis. Lovely for a weekend, so happy with my stay. Chris and partner are also friendly, hard-working, yet relaxed... More

2nd overnight trip to the farm. Loved our mini break and only wish is that we went more often. Chris and Angel created a real multicultural/sustainable/ecotourism experience only a stone's throw from Darwin. Hope to come back with friends w/little kids next month. Love the backpacker vibe from the butterfly farm family, all lovely, as we watch our kid play... More

We were in the top end to visit and spend some time with my daughter, and her first wish was to go the Butterfly Farm. The drive out from Darwin is interesting, the landscape changes from dry to watercourse green. The local rangers were doing some burns nearby with the grey black plumes wending their way skyward. We found the... More

My friend/colleague and I stayed here for one night recently as we were visiting the Batchelor Institute for Indigenous Tertiary Education, also in Batchelor township. Let's not beat around the bush - this area is remote. There is one public bus in, and one public bus out per day, and they drop you off on the side of the highway... More
