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.

These are Cruiser females laying eggs. They prefer to lay on dead matter close by the host plant, so we hang a few strands of cotton string for them.
