If you want to learn the basics of how to crochet, or if you are looking for a new hobby, this Crochet for Beginners class is for you!
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.
The Asian Street Food tour of Brisbane will introduce you to a variety of delicious Asian food, including Chinese, Malaysian, Thai, Vietnamese and Filipino.
The Butterfly House is wheelchair and pram friendly, however it is easier to access if you leave the pram in the car. Amenities and baby change facilities are also available.
There is no food available on site, so either pack a picnic to enjoy at the tables provided, or visit one of the close venues such as Sandstone Point Hotel while you are in the area.
