Early childhood


Butterfly Adventure is an interactive role-play experience where children explore the lifecycle of a butterfly through play and imagination. In Butterfly Adventure, children will dress up and role-play being caterpillars - experiencing the process of metamorphosis, transforming inside a chrysalis, emerging as butterflies and drinking nectar from giant flowers in the garden. 

The experience ends with a Ngunnawal Dream Time story about a person who turned into a butterfly.
