    Event description

    Enjoy the twilight in Centennial Parklands and learn about its inhabitants.  

    Join us for a 2km-twilight walk around Lachlan Swamp. Our education rangers and bat carers will talk to your groups about our colony of grey-headed flying foxes. 

    We will observe their fly out during sunset, watching them dip their belly in water and make their way to look for food. 

    You will learn about all the nocturnal inhabitants of the park and what you can do to help them survive in the urban environment they had to adapt.
