Rundown and tired. About 6 butterflies in the enclosure. Redeeming feature were the animals which kids would love

Finally made it to the Butterfly Farm after always hearing about it. It was...different! The staff were very friendly. We did a tour of the grounds & saw lots of animals. Not so many butterflies though! My son loved feeding the donkeys and pigs. We...stayed for lunch and our meal was nice. The overall appearance of the place is somewhat rundown but it still had a steady flow of people coming and going so they must be doing something right.More

We went out to Litchfield for a day trip and stopped at the Butterfly Farm for about an hour or two. Kids had a great time wondering through and seeing all the animals. They loved being able to feed carrots to the animals and get...up close to them.More

Spent two nights here with family we had 3 cabins Owners and staff were very friendly & welcoming The layout of accommodation is very eclectic but in good way. The animal farm kept the kids occupied. The restaurant food was excellent The eating deck was...cool and relaxing Rooms are spacious and fine for 3 star what you would expect of 3 star facilities This isn’t your run of the mill boring caravan park cabins, if that what you like then don’t come here We enjoyed our stay and even had to go say thank you & goodbye when we left as we were made to feel welcomed and felt bad just walking outMore

We choose to stay here for one night based on the uniqueness of the property. We enjoyed a comfortable sleep with the windows open and fan on, no need for the airconditioner on this particular evening. The grounds however were quite unkept and jungle-like which...did not appeal to our daughter. She actually has a phobia of spiders so upon seeing the property and the neighbouring spider in the web in the garden, she had a 17 year-old meltdown lasting several hours until she finally recovered. Even I felt a little uneasy walking around the gardens. The ten-or-so rabbits though looked so healthy and well cared. There were only a small number of butterflies around, due to the enclosure sustaining a hole in the netting during a storm. We did not eat at the venue. We had eaten dinner in Batchelor and returned to sleep at about 7pm. The restaurant was closed and completely dark. We were the only people booked in at the property. I needed to hunt around for some extra towels as there were only two left in our room (for four people). I found some hanging under a verandah near the restaurant. We didn't swim in the pool, it didn't look very inviting.More

Stopped in to see the butterflies in action. Came during the wrong season for the butterflies, but can see that at the right time of year the enclosure would be teaming with them. $12 gets you adult entry to the whole area including the butterflies...and a bowl of carrots to feed the cute bunnies. There are pigs, goats and chickens also. They serve meals and have accommodation but we didn't use any of those facilities.More

A lovely place to stay, close to Litchfield National Park. Very relaxed atmosphere, and you can enjoy the peace of the butterfly house late in the day if staying overnight.
