Things to Do Kuranda

Looking for things to do Kuranda?

The Australian Butterfly Sanctuary is the largest butterfly flight aviary and exhibit in the Southern Hemisphere.

Located in the heart of Kuranda, only a short walk from Skyrail and the Kuranda Scenic Railway station, our sanctuary is home to over 2000 butterflies from a variety of species.

The things that happen when you're not looking!

This Cairns Birdwing was hanging in the pupa room, getting ready to pupate.

Our lab staff looked away and a couple of minutes later it had shed its skin and looked like this!

Arti and Robin have been filming this happening, and visitors to our sanctuary can watch it on our TV screen outside the lab. Very cool!
