Garden Night-Life

Experience the Garden and its fascinating night-life on this adventure by torch-light. The Garden is a city oasis waiting to be explored!

We'll wander the garden pathways and visit biodiversity 'hotspots' such as the ponds to look for nocturnal animals - some who fly in for the night, others who are long-term residents. We'll use our senses and some tech-gadgets used by our scientists to help us locate animals. We may see Golden Orb spiders, Brush-tailed Possums, Microbats, Flying Foxes, Tawny Frogmouths ... or if we're really lucky we might even see the Garden's elusive Powerful Owl, Australia’s largest nocturnal avian predator.

Please note: This tour covers uneven terrain so be sure to wear comfortable enclosed walking shoes. A reasonable level of mobility is required. This event goes ahead in all weather so come prepared if it looks like it is going to be wet.
