Nocturnal Discovery Tour at Australian Botanic Gardens, Mount Annan January 6, February 3 and March 3, 2017
A series of Nocturnal Discovery Tours at The Australian Botanic Garden, Mount Annan will allow night time visitors to experience the gardens coming to life with an abundance of nocturnal creatures which call the garden home.
The tour will give a special insight into the night-life of kangaroos, wallabies, owls and frogs. Rarely seen during the day, seeing these animals in their natural habitat is a unique opportunity. Led by a gardens tour guide, the group will follow the sounds and signs of night creatures by torchlight.
Spanning 416 hectares, the Australian Botanic Garden is Australia’s largest, and is home to more than 180 species of Australian birds and various mammals and reptiles, including Peron’s Tree Frog and the Eastern Bearded Dragon. The Gardens are often visited for their scenic lakes, gardens, parks, walking and mountain bike tracks, but this after-hours tour will allow visitors to see a new side to the extensive grounds.
The Nocturnal Discovery Tour will run from 7.30pm to 9pm and adults or families with children older than five are welcome. The tour costs $22 and visitors are advised to bring a torch, enclosed shoes, insect repellent and warm clothes. The group will meet at the Mount Annan Drive entry gate to the Botanic Garden.
