Batty About Bats family bat walks

Date: Sat 14 September - Sun 22 September (Saturday and Sunday only)

Please note: Bat Walk on Sun 15 Sept has been cancelled.

Join us for a fun, family friendly bat walk experience to look for bats around the reserve and to watch them feeding over the lagoon!

The event begins before sunset so kids have a chance to get used to the changing light as dusk falls. Families will warm up for the walk and add to their bat knowledge by playing the echolocation game. Then our Learning team will guide you around the reserve to bat hot spots with bat detectors to hear and look out for bats emerging in the early evening.

Sept 14: the batty event starts at 6pm and runs until 8pm. Sunset is at 7.15pm ish

Sept 20-21:the batty event begins at 5.45pm and runs until 7.45pm as sunset is a bit earlier, at 7pm ish.
