These beautiful butterflies are still feeding en masse on a flowering rainforest tree on the edge of the rainforest gully at Botanic Gardens - its worth a visit to see them.  Very easy to find - go up the asphalt road past the cafe and Brittle Gum lawn until you reach the spot where the Main path comes out of the rainforest gully and crosses the asphalt into the Gymnosperms/Conifers section.  They are in a large flowering tree on the left a few metres further uphill - looks like section 104 on the map.   The label on the tree is: Acronychia imperforata (Logan Apple, a lowland rainforest plant from northern NSW coast).                            .
