Unlock the Gardens gates for an exclusive night adventure and experience the sounds, smells and feel of the Gardens in the dark. You might be lucky to see one of our insectivorous bats silhouetted against the blue sky, or a sugar glider or possum out in search of food in the tree-tops.
Our Education Rangers will shine the spotlight and uncover the stories of Australian native plants as they guide you through diverse habitats of the Gardens including the magically lit Rainforest Gully. The walk takes an hour, followed by hot milo and biscuits while students share their experiences.
Great evening activity for local and interstate schools, scouts, guides and youth groups.
