Tropical getaway awaits you
A tropical getaway these holidays is closer than you think!
Enter the lush, living environment of the Otago Museum’s Tropical Forest and come back to face with hundreds of beautiful live butterflies as well as birds, fish, turtles, tarantulas and geckos. Help release newly emerged butterflies every morning at 10:30am and watch as they take flight for the first time! Then, get set to get wet in January as monsoon season hits the Forest. Discover how some parts of the world are doomed with rain and create your own clever creature, fit for survival in the harshest places on earth, 2pm every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday from January 14. The Tropical Forest is the only three-level live butterfly experience in Australasia and is Dunedin’s hottest attraction. Take a tour with an experienced communicator and learn the story of the Forest and all its unique and amazing creatures. Book your guided tour today!
