Get Fit For Bats - The Big Bat Walk

Friday 03 May 2019

Enjoy the twilight in Centennial Parklands and learn about one of their inhabitants. Join them for a two kilometre twilight walk around Lachlan Swamp. Their rangers will talk to your groups about their bat colony - you will observe the beautiful fly-out of the fruit bats and you'll listen for the echo-locating calls of microbats as they hunt for bugs. If you are lucky you might not only see the beautiful bats but also other nocturnal friends in the park.

Wildlife preservation is a major task of environmental work. You will support volunteers as all profits from this event will go to the Centennial Parklands Foundation and environmental projects in the park.
