Bats in the Botanic Gardens

Classes, Lessons, Workshops and Talks

30 Apr 2021 Once Only Event

Come along to this exciting event featuring a twilight walk, wildlife interaction and bat experts.

Find out all about bats from Blue Mountains Ecologist and bat-expert Marg Turton, then meet a Grey-headed Flying Fox from Australian Wildlife Displays.

We’ll head out at twilight to reveal the secret life of bats after dark. This night-time walk in the woodland gives the unique opportunity to spot nocturnal wildlife rarely seen inside The Australian Botanic Garden.

Dress up in your battiest outfit for the night. A ‘best-dressed bat’ prize will be awarded to the most creative costume! Costumes not required, but strongly encouraged!

BYO EchoMeter or Anabat device if you have one.
