They make it fun and the interaction with the farm animals are always a treat for the children and adults alike. And a nice ice cream can be had there after a hot day. Also the care that is taken to care for the butterflies is awesome.

The little train trip around the creek. The farm animals that the kids get to see, pet & feed. The ice cream parlour as a treat for well behaved little ones. The dinosaurs enclosure. The trampoline for the little ones to play and make friends. And of course, the butterfly enclosure where if you stand still for long enough they land on you!

its educational and my granddaughters would love the experience also its a place that is serene

Watching my little princess discover butterflies in their own environment for the first time, in such a special place was inspiring to see. The wonder on her face and the sheer excitement is a money can't buy experience :-) #karenmurrell

An excellent day out for kids who love interesting insects, reptiles, farm animals and, of course, butterflies, Butterfly Creek is one of South Auckland's true gems. And every school holidays it comes alive with magical events. To celebrate the warmer months ahead, the attraction - which is on the way to the Auckland Airport - is throwing a special Spring Festival. Over the coming weeks, kids can get up close and personal with Butterfly Creek's new baby animal arrivals while enjoying face-painting, mice racing through a maze and craft workshops. There's also going to be barbecue action and specials at the on-site cafe to make sure every day is a fantastic adventure to keep the kids captivated. And if you haven't yet seen Butterfly Creek's amazing Dinosaur Kingdom then it's a great opportunity for a unique encounter of the reptilian kind.

Butterfly creek has a wonderful atmosphere, beautiful surroundings and great food. Mum can relax and enjoy it all while the kids play and then there's other activities at your doorstep if you choose.

That my two little girls loved it. Even though they were not big enough for the crocodiles they thought the butterflies were devine and the farmyard super cool. #blackmores
