    Wonderful experience

    Loved our outing to Butterfly Creek. Watching the eel, otter and crocodile feeds was really interesting. My daughter loved the mermaid display and play area. The little shop has so many wonderful items for sale, but are a bit pricey. Overall, it was a fantastic day out.
