Australian Butterfly Sanctuary

Activity Type

Darlene Woodward, Events Manager at CaPTA Group


Australian Butterfly Sanctuary is the largest butterfly flight aviary and exhibit in Australia.

Home to over 2,000 magnificent tropical butterflies including the striking blue Ulysses and majestic green Cairns Birdwing, the sanctuary is an all-weather experience in the heart of Kuranda.

You’ll be enchanted by these elusive wonders of nature as you wander through the aviary’s boardwalks and gardens with a picturesque rainforest backdrop.

Our knowledgeable guides will take you through the aviary and our breeding laboratory, detailing a butterfly’s life cycle and its behaviour. Be sure to wear something bright and let these beautiful creatures flutter all over you!
