The current Butterfly House has welcomed many hundreds of excited visitors over the last three years. 


This is the small, hobby style butterfly house in a residential area of Bribie Island, started by Ray Archer in 2013 and operated by dedicated and enthusiastic volunteers.

Our unusual banana and palm leaf Visitor’s Book has been inscribed by children and adults alike and their kind comments continue to inspire and encourage us all.


We hope you enjoy reading some of them. ☺  Wish you could also see some of the great artwork people have drawn in it!

See below some of the testimonials we have received from our wonderful visitors!


This is a fabulous place to spend time with children or even just on your own.  We have learnt a lot.  Thank you.
