I don't suppose anyone on the northside is heading to this? Unfortunately my partner has our car for the day so if anyone is happy to rideshare I'm more than happy to contribute to fuel!

Thanks so much for the link to the Bribie Butterfly House. I am going to book a group tour and take residents from the retirement village! It looks wonderful.

I need to buy a season pass to the BBH I've been there so many times.

Thanks for the reminder, Lissa - I had forgotten about that place and have yet to visit.

I can recommend Helen's talk - and her book with Frank Jordan. Great reference material for the local butterfly-fancier.

Would suggest a visit to the Bribie Butterfly House along First Ave for anyone interested in creating more butterflies.
