If you have an SLR, warm it up before going into the gardens as the humidity will make the lens fog up. They have a hand dryer there to help with that, but you don't want to send your time there doing that. There's too many neat things to see!

Wonderful place, lots to see. Very humid. Leave your coat in the car. Pre-warm your camera if you hope to take any shots, your lens will fog up right away.

If you sit still for long enough, there's a very personable green parrot that will perch on your shoulder, arm or in your lap and implore you to pet him!

From Our Editors

Perhaps unsurprisingly, butterflies play a starring role at Victoria Butterfly Gardens. Thousands of them flutter around freely, up to 75 species from across the globe. But the facility isn't just a home for butterflies: it's a thriving ecosystem. Exotic birds fill the space with their native songs, and other critters—including iguanas, tree frogs, and tortoises—also roam about the tropical plants and orchids.

In order to accommodate such a diverse spectrum of life, the thermostat at Victoria Butterfly Gardens remains set at 25 degrees Celsius with 80 percent humidity. The facility has essentially re-created a rainforest, and precise management enables it to thrive without packing the soil with such foreign sources as herbicides, pesticides, or protein powder. While strolling along its paths, visitors learn all about how the ecosystem operates, and various exhibits and displays let them inspect the Gardens' creatures and plant life more closely.
