In summer we see not only how colourful butterflies are when they fly but also how well “camouflaged” they are when resting on logs or rocks. Join us to hunt for Imperial Jezebels, Australian Painted Ladies, Common Brown butterflies and others.  We all love sunlight, and we owe many glorious and sweet-scented flowers to the butterflies and moths that pollinate them. Join our local expert, Dr Suzi Bond to see and hear about butterflies and the plants they like in the ANBG.

(Copies of the “Field Guide to the Butterflies of the Australian Capital Territory” by Suzi Bond with Steve Holliday and John Stein are for sale in the Botanical Bookshop.)
