What a lovely outing, you feel as though you are in a tropical oasis. A lovely respite from the city. Its a great outing to do with kids of any age as it is both fun and informative for them to see all the unusual creatures- not just butterflies Just be aware that it is very hot and humid inside the butterfly sanctuary.

When we first stepped into the green house the humidity hit us,then the magical wonder of the beautiful insects. The butterflies were active and busy going about their business. Some really beautiful colours and everyone struggling to get a good shot. Very child friendly. Great place for a family outing. Probably about an hour to go through everything. They have lizards and reptiles,guinea pigs and parrots...
There is a little restaurant and a curio/gift store. Beautiful and well worth a visit.

We went on a family outing with my 2 and 5 year old kids and they had a great time. My son loved the snakes and spiders (typical boy!) and my daughter had fun with the monkeys, birds and butterflies. The butterflies are beautiful and to see them in their natural tropical habitat was wonderful. We had lunch at the little restaurant - the staff were really friendly and service was quick and efficient, even though the place was full. The little gift shop is well priced and we came home with some cute souvenirs. Definitely recommended for a educational & fun outing.

We had a high expectation of Butterfly World because of recommendations from friends but we were slightly dissapointed. Great place for a light lunch but the service is slow and waiters not very attentive. Overall not to bad place.

Even though small, this packs a punch with loads of bird life, even a marmoset and iguanas along with the butterflies. Well laid out and I am glad we stopped
