Butterfly Creek Junior Keeper & Fun Day

Keep the kids entertained these summer school holidays with Butterfly Creek’s two great holiday programme days. Junior Keeper is perfect for children who love animals and want to get behind the scenes and find out what it is like to be a keeper for the day. Or check out our Fun Day which is great for kids who just want to have some fun climbing the high ropes and exploring Butterfly Creek for the day. Book one or let them do both days.

Testimonials

“Wow, my daughter had so much fun doing Junior Keeper we booked again last holidays. She is still raving about her day, especially getting up close with the otters.”

“My two children recently did Butterfly Creek’s Junior Keeper programme and they rated it as amazing & awesome.  They got up close with the farm animals, Crocodiles & Tarantulas as well as hand feeding the farm animals, and Parrots. Amazing experience for the kids. They want to do it again!!!! Recommended. Thank you to the staff who made it a great day.”
