Butterfly Creek
Tom Pearce Drive, Auckland Airport, Mangere, Auckland

Located on Tom Pearce Drive Just one minute from Auckland International Airport, Butterfly Creek boasts Australasia's premier Tropical Butterfly House with over 700 free flying exotic butterflies, tropical fish, birds and lizards.

On top of that there are saltwater crocodiles, a train ride and petting zoo wher you can feed rabbits, goats, guinnea pigs, alpacas, donkeys, chickens, parrots and more.

The on-site cafe, Papillon Cafe, is well stocked and offers a wide range of adult and kids meals as well as an ice-cream stand.

And now with the opening of Rocket Ropes offering two separate high rope courses, Butterfly Creek really does offer a great family day out in Auckland. With things to do for both children and parents, everyone will have a relaxing fun day.
