Early Childhood Educational Visits

Butterfly Creek is a wonderful place to bring the littlies. Every year our living classroom offers thousands of young children the chance to explore and connect with nature and learn all about the animal world.  It’s easy to walk around for little legs and a perfect day out sunshine or rain as our exhibits are ¾ under cover.

Our education co-coordinator will work directly with you to ensure you get the most out of your visit. We offer centre managers a free pre-visit if you haven’t visited in the last 12 months and can also supply free education resources once you have made your booking

Two great options. You can simply visit just Butterfly Creek, or you can combine a Butterfly Creek visit with a fun climbing experience at Rocket Ropes on the same day.
Conditions: Includes Early Childhood Centres and Home based organisations. Min 15 paying children & Max of 15 free under 3’s | Visit Wednesday – Friday (Excludes public and school holidays)
