The exhibits are camera friendly but please no tripods or mono-pods.  The Butterfly Rainforest is absolutely amazing with new butterflies being raised and released weekly.  Great handrails around the walkway make it a great place or rest your arms and steady your shot.

This lush 49 acre gardens is full of photo opportunities.  It is very camera friendly and tripods are permitted for outdoor shooting.  One the grounds is a 19th century plantation home that has been fully restored to the period.   Daily free tours are available.  You may take photos during the tour with no flash hand held.  I found this very easy as there is lots of light coming through the windows.
