South Coast Botanic Garden

Plan your visit today!

Witness the beautiful butterfly exhibit!

SOAR features tropical butterflies in our newly built pavilion. Your SOAR ticket allows you to enter the pavilion, but the experience begins outside with our new garden area featuring host and nectar plants, and an emergence chamber. Throughout the experience you’ll see butterflies in every stage of the life cycle. Once inside the pavilion, you’ll have the opportunity to watch them in their natural habitat, and, if you’re lucky, have a personal encounter with one! Most important, every step of the way you can learn all about these beautiful insects while having an experience to remember.
