Took the wife here for a visit it was well worth the money, the butterflies were plentiful and lots of colour, the butterflies land on you by the dozens, a very interesting attraction and well worth a visit, staff are very helpful and full of knowledge, we learnt a lot about this insect. Fun time, great for kids as well.

We were a little sceptical when we first arrived but once inside were amazed. So many butterflies. Great for the budding photographer. We spent at least an hour there

The staff, the sanctuary everything was perfect, an oasis of beauty and calm. It was very interesting and my 6 years old boys just love it, they were able to almost touch some butterflies and mostly allowed them to get a very close look at our beautiful butterflies. It was all worth it, the staff were extremely professional and kind and their knowledge about all the different species just mind blowing

This was a very cool experience up at Kuranda. You walk through a massive enclosure with literally thousands of butterflys just going everywhere. An awesome experience and well worth the money. Numerous species and just an amazing attraction.

I don't think I've been to a butterfly sanctuary with that many butterflies in it before. Not only were there a lot of different varieties, including many of the beautiful blue Ulysses that is deservingly famous, but there were also just a really high number of butterflies flying around in general. I entered the room and immediately in front of me there was one about the size of my hand...

Very interesting and impressive, highly recommend the guided tour. Bit expensive, bu probably the most interesting thing in the area. Privately owned and funded.
