Plants with Bite Exhibit

Enter the captivating and bizarre world of carnivorous plants with the living exhibition Plants with Bite. Featuring 25,000 of the world's hungriest and creepiest plants this exhibit tells the story of how the iconic Venus flytrap, lobster pots, bladders and more, lure, trop, kill and digest insects. A true miracle of evolution, marvel at the simplicity of these plants.

While you're visiting wonder at one of the largest vertical floral walls in the southern hemisphere, enjoy a bite at the cafe, take a breather while the kids explore in the kids play corner or pick up a collectable from the retail shop.
