Butterfly Creek, Auckland Reviews
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.
A great place for the kids to explores, with dinosaurs, eels, otters, and a small farm. Numerous encounters throughout the day so kids can get up and close with the animals. A new Kiwi exhibit has just opened, and there's a fun miniature train ride (at extra cost) available. Well-stocked cafe (licensed for the grown-ups). Unfortunately the sense of time is a little elastic, as some encounters open early and some late, when combined with the scattered locations, can make it hard to link up all the experiences.
Cool place with a neat butterfly enclosure. Feeding time with the crocodiles and walks into the farm animals is also enjoyable. Think the value for $$ spent is a bit overpriced. $75 for a family of 4 plus additional charge for a train ride, I think is about $25 too much.
Great place to take the kids. Butterflies, miniature train ride, spiders, petting zoo 'dinosaurs' and fossils. Time well spent. Eat before you go as the food is on the expensive side and not that great. A cappuccino was served in an espresso cup. Dining area staff not very friendly but all other staff were wonderful. Ice cream shop shut early too so we missed the pleasure of having a nice treat at the end.
They were fantastic. They fetched our entire group of 6 people from the airport at no charge and stored our mountain of luggage while we were at the venue. The Restaurant is very reasonable, and the giant portions definitely hit the spot after a long flight, if you are battling to choose the Goldie burger is what you want. The kids had a blast, they loved the crocodile feeding. The dinousaur park was great. The farmyard animals section was really cool as the kids were allowed to pet the animals. Finally they took us back to the airport. Excellent service.
