We left the creek with mixed feelings, the butterfly house was amazing and the train was awfully, close to a rip of. It's a nice och good place for the family and specifically the kids. But stay clear of the train.

We travelled to Butterfly Creek from Whakatane for my 30th birthday with our 4 kids! It was awesome. Something for everyone! Watching the feedings and the butterfly release were worth planning your visit around. Was worth the trip over! Thanks guys :)

Lovely food but abit pricey. You pay extra for train ride with your entry fee. Feed the animals, some work going on for more exhibits, playground for kids. Not far from airport.
