Butterflies and Botanic Gardens

Late morning continue on to Bonville. Ensure that you are wearing your bright colours today to attract the butterflies at The Butterfly House and be 'kissed' by these radiant creatures. After lunch, continue on to the North Coast Regional Botanic Gardens. Five kilometres of well made paths and boardwalks provide easy access to all garden sections, and there are directional signs, with plenty benches scattered throughout the garden where you can sit and take in the beauty of your surrounds.
