Butterfly Creek are proud to host NZ's only giant saltwater crocodiles - the world's apex predators. Complimenting these reptiles is our magnificent tropical butterfly house, cotton-top tamarins and other reptiles such as the bearded dragon and alligators. We also host NZ's giant wetapunga - one of the world's largest insects and an aquaria and bugs exhibit including tarantulas. Beside the courtyard and playground, take a wee train ride around the new Dinosaur Kingdom that opened in Jan 2014 - see the dinosaurs come to life! Last but not least is Buttermilk farm where you can get up close and personal with the cute and cuddly animals.
Butterfly Creek hosts fantastic all-inclusive children's parties and we run a behind the scenes Junior Keeper programme for those animal lovers.
Animal encounters occur daily and we are open every day except Xmas & Boxing day and we are 50% undercover so don't let the rain put you off!
We are situated 2 minutes from the Airport and provide a free shuttle service to and from the airport.
Conference room booking - I have been here a number of times and the venue has always been good for the booking. Room overlooking site, not distracting, good food, well organised venue. Works well for bookings up to maybe 30 people. Machien coffee a bit ho hum, but proper coffe available at aextra cost.
Went here for my son's 2nd birthday, the kids loved the butterflys and crocodiles, had heaps of fun in the playground. Were a bit apprehensive of the big roaring dinosaurs, calmed them down again in the animal petting part.. then hit of the day was train ride.
Straight after we picked up the rental car we stopped in here, lovely display the butterfly room was beautiful and I love they have live reptiles on display, they have a great range of products to guy I love the place mats for kids got some of them and some lovely little kids jewerly sets, was well maintained and family friendly here
This is a great place for the kids. The playground is awesome and the train ride is always a hit. There are lots of things to see even if the entry price is quite expensive.
we went a few weeks ago while on holiday the kids loved every moment they loved the dinosaur area and the butterfly they loved they flew on there heads the train ride was a hit we finished off in the cafe for lunch lots of yummy options and well priced
visited here with the kids while on holiday a few weeks ago it was great fun the kids loved the train ride and the farm animals the cafe had such yummy well priced food and lots of options for the kids
Fantastic day out with the kids so much to see and do.My eldest even did a zoo keeper for a day and she loved it.
Awesome day out for all. Quite expensive to get in, but once in it's really great. They also have a really good cafe there. Their cafe has a lot of gluten & dairy free cakes and savories, yum!
Good place to take kids. Cool crocodiles and cool dinosaur exhibits! Also has a train ride and opportunity to hold and feed cute little animals. Best of all, the butterfly house!
Fantastic place, variety so all the kids are guaranteed to love something, and the train rides past dinosaurs were a hit.
kids loved coming here, the butterflies was the best part, can't wait till they finish the rest of the renovations, cafe food was really good with lots of choices especially for kids
Really fun visit with kids. If they love all sorts of creatures this os the place to go. Good location near the airport
awesome place to visit with the kids, the crocodiles are amazing, and the guys working with them are great. The butterfly area is just beautiful, very warm but absolutely stunning. Having butterflies land on you as you walk around is so cool, the kids were just thrilled to bits
The kids love this place, we spent ages in the butterfly room with the butterflies landing on us, cant do that everywhere! The crocodile show is great to. Lots to do and parking is easy. Its not cheap to get in but for a whole days entertainment it is good value
Amazing place for the kids stopped by as soon as we got our rental car, did cost a bit more than expected, but honestly was great we loved the memo fish and the butterflies are just so incrediable, the crocs were super lazy but worth taking a look they are interesting animals
Kids enjoyed themselves and had fun, love the cafe food and would return just to dine there.
Fun day out with my daughter, it was very expensive but she enjoyed seeing the butterflies and crocodiles.
Pricey but nice. This was a fun family outing. We enjoyed the dinasour kingdom and the butterflies. Their colours are beautiful.
This was a nice day out but definitely more for smaller kids but it was still fun. The highlight of our day wss definitely the butterfly enclosure. The cafe is nice with a nice variety of food options.
Over priced for what is there. In terms of butterfly encounters it has nothing on Dunedin museum. More suited to toddlers than older children.
