Twenty-three-month-old Ashwin Singh’s bright red hat proved irresistible to a Morpho Peleides butterfly during a recent visit by children from Barnardos ’ Kid Start scheme in Manurewa to Auckland’s Butterfly Creek.

The trip was arranged by allrealestate.co.nz, and the children and their carers travelled on the company’s branded bus in its unmistakeable red livery, which is operating on Auckland’s streets until September.

allrealestate.co.nz staff rode on the bus with the group of under-5s, joining in with several renditions of ‘The wheels on the bus go round and round’!

The children saw how over 700 free-flying butterflies from Asia and South America have found a new home in wintry New Zealand in a specially designed butterfly house, which is kept at a tropical 28 degrees C with 70 - 80% humidity, streams, misting and waterfalls so as to replicate the conditions of the butterflies’ usual environment. The youngsters also had the chance to pat and hold their favourite farmyard animals and to see tropical fish and lizards in Butterfly Creek’s aquarium.

Children hop aboard the new address in property

Children from Barnardos’ Kid Start scheme in South Auckland joined Declan Wyndham Smith of online property company allrealestate.co.nz on a trip to Butterfly Creek.

The company’s branded bus, which is working Auckland routes until the middle of September, took a group of children and their carers to play with rabbits and guinea pigs, and to see how 700 exotic tropical butterflies have been given a new home in wintry New Zealand.

Says allrealestate.co.nz New Zealand manager and St Heliers resident, Wyndham Smith, “We wanted to give the children a day out doing something different, which is not always easy in the winter.

“Everyone had a great time. We’d love to arrange another trip while our bus is in the city.”
