The monarch butterfly is a true marvel of nature. Weighing less than a paper clip, it makes one of the longest migrations on Earth – a journey of over 4800 kilometres across an entire continent.

Join millions of butterflies in their perilous journey to the remote mountain peaks of Mexico. Unravel the true and compelling story of an intrepid scientist’s 40-year search to find the monarchs’ secret hideaway, and be captivated by breathtaking cinematography from an award-winning team, including Oscar winner Peter Parks.

Experience the Flight of the Butterflies in the Perpetual Guardian Planetarium, then visit the butterflies in Tūhura's Tropical Forest with a combo pass.
