The Butterfly and Orchid Garden in Thames is New
Zealand's first tropical butterfly and orchid house. We show
butterflies from all over the world.
The butterfly house is fully sheltered, heated, ideal for sunny
and rainy days, wheel chair friendly, with a good selection of
ice creams, hot and cold drinks and souvenirs.
There is always a good range of exotic plants in flower.
The butterfly house is also the home for finches. Our birds provide
natural pest control and keep the butterfly house clean from grubs.
