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

Very passionate, friendly host. Place to stay is decent with own cabins and really it's all you need up here. Breakfast included was good, unfortunately very disappointed with the dinner, food was bland and expensive. Would not pay $30 for a family to see the butterflies, outrageous!

If you like places that are a bit unusual then you'll love the butterfly farm. Our accommodation had a tiger theme, the host Chris had a quirky Irishman theme and the food was really done well with lots of vegies from their own gardens. We loved the dinner so much we came back for breakfast and weren't disappointed. If you... More

We stayed for three nights and would definitely stay again. Chris, Angel and Sky were friendly and helpful, the food was good, and the accommodation was comfortable. There were warnings about snakes after dark - we only saw one heading into the undergrowth, and a few cane toads. Angel has a lovely big veggie garden, so the salads were very... More

My 7 years old kid loved this place very much. There is pool, rabbits to feed and butterfly garden. For adults, it like a home, you can freely roam around their reception with sofa and dinning table to relax. Chris is very jovial guy and keep entertaining kids with butterflies and his surroundings events. The rooms are great and spacious!... More

If I was ever going to go back that way I would stay there again without hesitation. I was travelling with two friends and we loved it, we were so sad to leave after two nights. Chris, Angel and Sky were the best hosts. BBF was all and more than we expected! It was a quirky place, the rooms were... More

Unfortunately l only had the opportunity to stay for 2 nights - l would have loved to stay longer! Great ambience, location very handy to Litchfield NP, rooms are gorgeous and the host Chris & his family were very accommodating.

We spent 2 nights here and it felt like home. Chris went out of his way to help us and even cooked our BBQ in his own kitchen. The establishment has a great atmosphere and welcomes people beautifully. The butterflies are amazing and the pet farm fun. We stayed in the Fairy room (4 adults) which is basic but was... More
