Take the family and have a holiday adventure at Butterfly Creek’s Dinosaur Kingdom these school holidays. See over 40 roaring and moving animatronic dinosaurs. Make dinosaur and butterfly masks in the Boneyard room, get a photo with our walking dinosaur teams, or see special guests Bella the Unicorn and Jack the Pirate all in Dinosaur Kingdom on select days in the school holidays. To see what is on each day check out our holiday calendar below.

Please note: Due to Covid all butterflies are currently sourced from Central America. These butterflies are generally not as active as our butterflies from Asia, especially on dull days. You may need to visit the butterfly house several times during your visit to see them active.

However, there is still heaps to see across the rest of the park including kiwi, otters, dinosaurs, mythical creatures, farm animals, birds, crocodiles and more. So treat the kids to a magical day out.
