Gar­den Night Life

Where Sydney - - Where Now What’s On -

Ex­pe­ri­ence the Royal Botanic Gar­den Syd­ney and its fas­ci­nat­ing night-life on this ad­ven­ture by torch-light. 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. Then use your senses and some tech-gad­gets used by our sci­en­tists to help lo­cate an­i­mals. You may see Golden Orb spi­ders, Brush-tailed Pos­sums, Mi­cro­bats, Fly­ing Foxes, Tawny Frog­mouths ... or even the Gar­den’s elu­sive Pow­er­ful Owl, Aus­tralia’s largest noc­tur­nal avian preda­tor.

2 March, Meet at Wool­loomooloo Gate, Royal Botanic Gar­den Syd­ney. Book­ings es­sen­tial.­son/gar­den-night-life
