Batchelor Butterfly Farm

Botanical Gardens In Batchelor , Northern Territory

The Batchelor Butterfly Farm and Tropical Retreat offers the Northern Territory its first and only butterfly sanctuary. Located just 15 minutes from Litchfield National Park, you’re invited to experience the tranquillity of the rainforest butterfly enclosure.

As you walk through the very unique gardens, planted for their ability to attract and feed butterflies, you will be charmed by both the tropical and native butterflies as they dance in the canopies and feed from the fruits and flowers. The climate of the Top End allows the enclosure to be a completely natural habitat with the butterflies existing freely within.

The colony of native turtles also enjoy visitors and are often found basking on logs at 'Turtle Beach’ while the waterfalls, streams and ponds throughout the gardens will ensure your Top End experience is unforgettable.

The organic farm grows much of the produce used in the 'Long Table' restaurant. Visitors have the opportunity to see bunches of star fruit, banana hands, paw paws, beds of fresh herbs, tomato filled wines, and other fruits both tropical and wild.

Access to the gardens is daily from 9.30am to 4pm and self guided tours operate throughout the day, with occasional butterfly releases into the enclosure. You can stroll through the lush tropical gardens at your leisure and learn the history of the farm and the life cycle of the butterflies. A map of the property and a handy information flyer is supplied.

For those needing that extra bit of hospitality, why not relax on the daybed on the cool and shady veranda, while indulging in something refreshing from the cafe.

Accommodation is also available at the property.
