If you are curious about the strange Bugs and Butterflies of the world then this is the place to visit, they’re all here. The Museum houses the largest collection of rare and bizarre insects in Australia. Stephen Lamond has spent the majority of his life working as a commercial collector in many parts of the world. The Museum was established to share the hidden secrets of the insect world with those who have very little chance to meet these creatures in the wild. As the wold’s rainforests were rapidly being cleared the race was on to discover these unknown treasures before they disappered forever, without ever being seen. Now you can see them here.

For those who like the hands on approach there are Giant Cockroaches, Leaf & Stick Insects and the colourful Butterflies of the Daintree Coast. The buildings and cabinets have been designed and handcrafted by Stephen to showcase the beauty of the Local timbers and enhance the magnificence of this unique collection.
