Tropical Butterfly House
Butterfly Creek is home to one of the largest tropical butterfly houses in New Zealand. Our butterflies are imported as pupae from butterfly farms all around the world, but primarily from Asia and Central America. The butterfly house is temperature controlled to approximately 28 degrees celsius and has high humidity to replicate the conditions of the butterflies’ natural environment. Inside the tropical butterfly house you’ll also find, finches, water dragons and variety of fish.
Immerse yourself among the living butterflies, watch them flutter around you and even land on you! Butterflies are attracted to bright colours such as red, blue, orange and surprisingly, white.
“I was at Butterfly Creek with my daughters and grandchildren and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. It’s very hard to put into words the joy and excitement that was on all the children’s faces from your amazing exhibits.”
