Halloween Twilight Tour 31/10/2017

October 31, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm



Details about the walk

Listen to the chilling calls of the Murder Bird, shiver as microbats fly overhead, and do you ever get the feeling there is someone or something watching you?!

Our Ecologist will take you deep into the Sanctuary, inside the predator-proof fence, where native animals are thriving in the absence of foxes and feral cats.

The night is full of strange sounds as different species call to one another. You may hear the distant cry of the Bush Stone-curlew as these birds awaken to in search for insects in the grassy woodland.

The frog song around the water bodies within the Sanctuary can, at times, be deafening. The Ecologist can help you identify the various species of frog through their different calls.

There are also an increasing number of owls and other nocturnal bird species in the Sanctuary that can sometimes be seen and heard. While, micro-bats can often be seen darting in and out of the torch beam attracted by insects.

Get inspired by learning how science is enhancing our understanding and ability to restore these critically endangered woodlands.
