A butterfly house to capture the imagination

There is something magical about butterflies that captures a child's imagination. Getting up close and personal with them will have your little ones feeling on top of the world.

At the Bribie Island Butterfly House the knowledgeable volunteers bring this magic to life every Wednesday and Sunday.



You and your family are invited to a Photography for Parents Workshop on Sunday 28th April at New Farm Park.

Located a 45-minute drive from Brisbane, The Bribie Island Butterfly House offers visitors an up-close experience with a wide variety of butterflies from $7 for a child's entry.

As you enter the Butterfly House, children can view the life cycle of the Butterfly, including Chrysalis and some recently emerged butterflies. You are also provided with a Butterfly identification card, which forms a great activity for older children to try to spot them all.

After entering through the tunnel, you will emerge into a beautiful garden of flowering shrubs and hundreds of butterflies. Be sure to take your time and look all around, view them flying overhead, perched on flowers or feeding at the refuelling stations. The best part is trying to encourage them to land on you!



Although there is a strict no-touch policy, you are encouraged to stand still and have them land on you. The butterflies were most active in the warm sun and seemed to be attracted to the lighter coloured clothing. Another tip is to hold your Butterfly identification card out still, in two hands and let them land on this.
