There are just a couple of spots left on the Twilight Tour at Mulligans Flat this Friday night, now is your chance to see the illusive bettongs, curlews and sugar gliders in their natural habitat.

Tours run for about 2.5 hours over twilight and into the evening, giving participants a unique opportunity to see the beautiful woodland and native animals as they were in the past. You’ll also learn about the research projects taking place at Mulligans Flat which are seeing the reintroduction of previously extinct species including the Eastern Bettongs, New Holland Mouse and Bush Stone-curlew that were once widespread throughout the woodlands of the ACT.

Mulligans Flat really comes alive at night, with the animals out feeding and frolicking. The sanctuary is the only place in Australia to see both bettongs and curlews in their natural habitat!

Highly recommend this tour. I did it last Friday and we saw three or four bettongs (we may have seen the same one twice), a tawny frogmouth and a few wallabies and kangaroos.

The guide was very informative and enthusiastic and it’s great to know the money is going back into improving this valuable wildlife sanctuary.

So if you get a chance, it’s a great (if a little different) night out.
