Behind the Scenes Animal Encounters

Love animals and want to get up close and personal with them? Well at Butterfly Creek you get the chance to visit behind the scenes with a range of very special animals. Say hi to Raf & Shyla, our tiny Cotton-top Tamarins, hand feed our cheeky otters, or hang out with a parrot.


“There is such an incredible variety on show. It is incredibly interactive which I think is what makes it a hit for the little ones. We especially love the feeding time for the crocs!”
