    Ok

    Not many butterflies due to the Pandemic, other attractions are ok. The food, coffee and gift shop are surprisingly good. I'm glad we didn't pay full price.

    Butterfly Creek - Loved it!

    My husband and I took our 5 year old during school holidays this year and it had everything for everyone a cafe onsite for the adults, live life size dinosaurs, a train that wraps around the park, crocodiles, butterflies, farm animals and the warm and friendly Mila who joined us while walking around the farm area. Definitely recommend! A good day out for the family. Staff were very welcoming and friendly.
