It has brought the worlds most aggresive predator the Australian Crocodile to New Zealand,(2 Giant Salt Water Crocodiles) Alligators, Tropical Aquaria, full Petting Zoo & established a breeding program for endangered Giant Wetapunga and has Australasia`s premier Butterfly House with up to 700 butterflies.

There is something for the whole family!Plus - Complementary shuttle to & from the airport for those visiting the attractions - just arrive at the airport and visit the iSite information centre and ask them to call you a shuttle.

More suitable for smaller children under 9 yrs old. We liked the crocodile shows best. Don't expect a full day outing, its rather a few hours as it is a fairly small complex. Food for sale was average and over priced.

Being in amongst the tropical butterflies is a great experience. The kids (in our case grandkids) especially love it as they stand there and wait for the butterflies to land on them. The kids also love it when the misty water is turned on. Yes they get very wet, but in the hot, humid temperature in there, what the heck!! :-)
