The Bribie Island Butterfly House is Reopening!

By Tanayah Wakefield

Leave your worries behind and be kissed by hundreds of butterflies at Bribie Island Butterfly House.

The centre founded by Ray and Delphine Archer, and run by volunteers at Bongaree, is a sanctuary for 19 varieties including the threatened blue Ulysses butterfly.

There you can tiptoe through an enclosed butterfly garden, learn more about the stunning insects, and take a look at the work volunteers are doing in the laboratory to increase butterfly numbers.

A walk through the butterfly garden is delightful with relaxing music playing, the sound of water features and a mist adding to the experience. There’s just one rule — don’t touch the butterflies.

The centre will reopen from June 28 on Sundays and Wednesdays only from 10am-4pm. Bookings are essential to guarantee your spot, with only 100 people permitted per hourly session due to COVID-19 restrictions.

Entry is $12 adults, $10 concession, $7 children (4-15), $34 family (two adults, two children). The centre is at 208 First Ave, Bongaree. Want to know more? Head to the website or Facebook page.
