Butterfly Creek, Auckland Reviews

  • Well maintained place with a good variety of things to do and see. Animals look well cared for. And the price is reasonable for what you get. Suitable for all ages for a nice day out.

  • We were blown away with how much there was to see here. Last time we came they had the train, the butterfly house and the crocodiles and spiders and some farm animals. Now they have this whole dinosaur exhibit which is really cool too.

  • Great place to visit with kids! We saw feeding time with Goldie the Croc. I was impressed that there were benches available in 2 heights - kids and adults The dino sculptures were amazing! It was great for photos. I also liked posing in the raptor cage. Farm experience was great too. There were a lot of animals like goats, sheep, pigs, chickens, ducks, rabbits, alpacas etc. But it didn't smell! Fantastic job guys!

  • What a great place for family fun. Heaps of well thought out activities. Cafe could do with a little more staff at times to get through peaks but overall loved it.

  • Very much liked the place!! The butterflies were amazing. Our daughter did enjoy the play area as well, although, it is a bit small. The train ride also is not too exciting. The dinosaur area, the farm animals area were both enjoyable for our daughter. The cafe does not have much of a selection for vegetarians, so, if you are vegetarians, make alternate arrangements. They do allow outside food, only you would need to use one of the outside table. Would definitely recommend the place.
