Tropical Forest

Paid admission

A lush, living gallery

The Tropical Forest is the only three-level live butterfly experience in Australasia. 

It stays at about 28 degrees and 75% humidity year-round, making it warm and welcoming – the hottest attraction in Dunedin, in fact!

See hundreds of exotic butterflies, colourful orchids, chirping finches, giant banana palms and other rainforest dwellers, all without leaving the city. 

Purchase your ticket to Discovery World Tropical Forest at the Otago Museum Shop. All shows, programmes and events in Discovery World Tropical Forest are included in the cost of admission.
