Special Needs

Looking after your special needs

Butterfly Creek is a wonderful place to bring people with special and/or additional needs. Their senses will come to life by feeling the flutter of butterfly wings in the Butterfly House, patting soft rabbits and letting a goat feed out of their hands. We are wheelchair friendly throughout the complex, wheelchairs can even go on the train, but only one at a time.


We offer special rates for all special needs customers on the All Attractions option which includes all animals and Dinosaur Kingdom (train is an additional $3.00pp).
You can purchase tickets on the day at our shop or if you are unclear about what constitutes special needs or need assistance please email us in advance [email protected].

“Butterfly Creek took care of my wheelchair-bound husband last weekend with such dignity, respect and consideration. He was treated so well throughout the whole complex. Very wheelchair friendly place. Thanks Butterfly Creek for making our day! Katherine.”
