We send butterflies Overnight via Toll Priority as Australia Post can’t offer the same level of reliability and tracking.   We need a few days to prepare your order, please give us at least two weeks notice. If you need the butterflies urgently (less than four weeks in advance), please call or email us first. Additional charges may apply.  If all butterflies are allocated, we may not be able to accept online orders with less than 4 weeks notice.  Please contact us first.

Any number of Butterflies (the minimum order is 2) can be released from individual envelopes or mass release boxes.  We deliver Australia wide overnight, except the islands and tops of mountains :).

We use Toll Priority to deliver butterflies to your door, overnight.  They provide good but expensive service, so the standard postage and handling charge is $45.  The advantage, however, is their reliability compared to other options.  They can also track the package in transit on Saturdays.  Because there is no pickup service on Saturday or Sunday, we can not deliver on Mondays.  When the situation is desperate:

  • you can pick up from various locations in Melbourne
  • you can organise one of your guests to bring butterflies to you from Melbourne
  • There is the same day delivery option for mainland Australia but the delivery prices start from $350.

    Naming Day – January 2017
  • To Butterfly Adventures, from the bottom of our hearts we would like to thank you for allowing us to have these butterflies in memory of those love ones who could not be at our wedding.
    Wedding – April 2017
  • The butterflies were beautiful and all survived the trip.  They were amazing and hung around for photos.  Thank you so much, it made the day really special.
    Wedding – October 2017
  • I just want to say an enormous thank you for the butterflies. It was so amazing today, 2 flew off and landed in a tree overlooking our service. The third one landed on the children of the mother whom had passed and then continued to be attracted to her youngest child. The child was able to re-catch the butterfly and took it home. Such a wonderful addition to our service.
