The Bribie Island Butterfly House 

On their retirement, the founders of the Butterfly House, Ray and Delphine Archer, being inspired by their love of butterflies and their desire to give back to the world, developed the Bribie Island Butterfly House.

With the support of the Moreton Bay Regional Council and a band of willing volunteers, work commenced in 2015.

You will be able to walk amongst the butterflies in flight and immerse yourself in the wonders of the butterfly world.

One purpose for the existence of the Bribie Island Butterfly House is to give back to the less fortunate of the world, all profits being donated to charities. For more information visit

Our lunch venue is the award-winning, beautiful Sandstone Point Hotel, located at Sandstone Point overlooking the pristine waters of the Pumicestone Passage and Moreton Bay.

Delegates will be able to order from the restaurant menu and pay for their individual meals on the day. 

More information about the excursion and to register may be obtained by contacting Dawn Franzmann, Secretary, BOIC on either 0419 786 369 or email
