This is a natural part of the life cycle of the butterflies in the sanctuary and signifies the completion of the journey from egg to butterfly.

Butterfly Releases

Butterflies are symbols of transformation and hope that will add a touch of magic to any occasion, big or small. It's a truly unique way to connect with nature and create a memory that will stay with you and your loved ones forever.

Whether celebrating a wedding, a graduation, or simply a momentous occasion, a butterfly release elevates the experience into something truly unforgettable.

Our butterflies are all hand raised on the premises; when you order butterflies for release, we raise them especially for your occasion, for smaller butterfly releases (less than 20) we need 2 weeks’ notice, for larger releases we need up to 6 weeks’ notice.

We are unable to provide Ulysses or Cairns Birdwings for release as they are a protected species. We provide butterflies for release in Far North Queensland only.
