The Bat Tent
Look up! Over there! Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No. It's Botanic Park's fascinating flying foxes!
Find out everything you wanted to know about bats but were too afraid to ask.
What actually is a flying fox? Where did they come from? Why are they here? Are they endangered?
Come and have a 'bat chat' with some expert animal behaviour researchers, peruse the bat education display, and observe Botanic Park's bat colony through binoculars to learn all about these incredible animals and the critical role they play in our ecosystem. Watch them take off at dusk each night as they depart for their evening food flight.
