Cairns Kuranda Ausrtalian Butterfly Sanctuary Entry Ticket
Australian Butterfly Sanctuary is the largest butterfly flight aviary and exhibit in Australia - an all-weather experience in the heart of Kuranda. Home to over 2,000 magnificent tropical butterflies, you will be enchanted by the aerial dynamics of these elusive wonders of nature as you wander through the aviary's rainforest gardens.
All butterflies are local rainforest species, including the electric blue Ulysses and the majestic green and yellow Cairns Birdwing butterflies.
Guided aviary tours detailing a butterfly's life cycle and behaviour are available at no extra cost throughout the day. Be sure to wear something bright (recommend red, white or hot pink) and let these beautiful and colourful creatures flutter all over you as you wander through!
After walking through the aviary, the guide will take you to the breeding laboratory, which houses up to 4,000 caterpillars. This interesting and educational experience provides an opportunity to view at first hand the breeding laboratory through special viewing windows, where you will see the caterpillars in their varying stages of development.
