Butterfly Creek Covid-19 Important Information

Butterfly Creek is open Wednesday to Sundays, but under the restrictions below 

We want to ensure you will have a fun and safe visit and have implemented a range of measures to keep you safe. Our exhibit & movement spaces are spread over a large area of around 18,000 square metres, with around 1 km of pathways. You are not confined with large numbers of other visitors – everyone is spread out over the park to ensure safe social distancing. You are also not subjected to repeat, high contact touch areas. Please check out our current hours of operation which change at different alert levels.

Vaccination Policy:  Our prime concern is the health and welfare of visitors, staff and animals. We will be following all government mandates and will only allow entry to visitors who can show proof of vaccination aged 12+ either with the My Vaccine Pass or printed. Note if using a printed copy we may ask for ID.

What you need to know about your visit:

  • You must sign in using the NZ Covid Tracer app or manually onsite located in the entry and foyer area
  • People aged 12+ must show proof of vaccination at our shop counter or cafe if visiting there first
  • You must wear masks in all areas (aged 12+) and maintain 1m distances from other groups
  • We are currently offering takeaway food and drinks. Our cafe will be open for indoor and outdoor dining – seated and separated
