Event description

Wildlife of the Night – Spotlighting

The majority of Australia’s small mammals are nocturnal and the best time to see them is at night.  

About this event

Join Mike Cleeland, Education Officer at Bunurong Coast Education, to go on a guided night walk and search for nocturnal animals and find out what goes on out in the bush after the sun goes down.

Meet at the Bunurong Environment Centre at the corner of Ramsey Blvd and The Esplanade in Inverloch.  Following an introduction to the activity and a safety briefing the group will go to the Screw Creek Reserve in Inverloch for a night walk about three kilometres away.  Participants will need their own transport.  Warm protective clothing may be advisable depending on the weather.  Bring a torch.

Please Note:

  • All adults accompanying children must purchase a ticket.
  • Groups may be up to 25 people.
