School Holidays at Butterfly Creek

3 July, 2023 -10:00 am - 16 July, 2023 -2:30 pm

Explore the tropics at Butterfly Creek during these school holidays! Come and join us for an exciting line-up of entertainment and activities. Warm up in the tropical butterfly house and enjoy watching the butterflies flutter and they might even land on you! Our daily animal encounters let you get up close with many of our animals including the exotic reptiles, tarantulas, crocs, and tamarin monkeys. And if you are looking for more, you can get creative with our tropical-themed arts & crafts.

Keep an eye out for our Intrepid Explorer roaming the park on selected days, and make sure to visit one of our face-painting sessions throughout the holidays. As most of our attractions are undercover, Butterfly Creek is the perfect choice for a day out no matter what the winter weather brings us.

Plus, there is so much else to see at Butterfly Creek. Explore mythical lands where unicorns and dragons come alive, connect with cute animals in Buttermilk Farm, and see the otters, and meerkats at play. Travel back to when dinosaurs roamed the earth, spot Kiwi in our unique Kiwi Forest, and enjoy free play on our adventure playground.

Book your tickets online today and treat the kids to a fun-filled holiday adventure.
