Butterfly Tropics

Visit Butterfly Tropics at Wild Life Sydney Zoo and discover the vast range of animals living in this tropical habitat.


Enter the Butterfly Tropics and there's no telling who you might run into! Discover Australia's tropical Top End, with distinct wet and dry seasons, consistent 33C average temperature and enough sun and water to maintain lush greenery and billabongs all year round.

Be amazed at the diverse range of animals living in our carefully-created tropical habitat, butterflies flitting through lush ferns and palms to vividly coloured pythons sunning themselves among the vines and slithering through the thick undergrowth. And it wouldn't be the Top End without some fresh water for the animals to take a break from the heat and humidity, so check out the waterhole home to turtles, fish, birds and frogs!
