    Butterfly creek

    Nice and quiet during a weekday, lots too look at and beautiful animals. Great tarantula experience. Bit sad to see so many plastic plants in the small enclosures though.

    Great day

    Such a cool place to visit. Great for ammateur wildlife photographers like me. Friendly knowledgeable staff ensured enjoyable encounters with the wildlife and tame life (farmyard animals). Loved the butterflies, saltwater croc feeding, fish, fossils... Impressive animated dinosaurs are lots of fun for kids of all ages. The only negative is that the food was overly expensive. I am on a tight budget so it was great to get a half price deal through bookme. If you do this you might be able to afford something to eat lol. I couldn't make it on the day I booked due to a bereavement but was able to change my booking to another day without any problem.

    All Animals + Dinosaurs

    Quite easy to get there. We preferred not to use SkyBus because it's too expensive ($18 per person) if you go from CBD by bus. We took a bus to Onehunga Train Station ($3.10 per person) and from there the bus No.380 ($1.80). All the trip took one and a half hour. In short: we spent a very nice time. Butterfly Creek isn't a big park but this is more than enough to spend a few wonderful hours in there. Butterfly Creek staff were very friendly. Food in Butterfly Creek Cafe was, surprisingly, in a great many varieties and the prices were reasonable. We would definitely recommend Butterfly Creek to visit, especially, with kids.
