La Trobe Wildlife Sanctuary presents

Twilight Tour - 28 March

A high proportion of our wildlife is nocturnal and emerges only at night. If you want to see them you'll need to venture out into the dark.



About this Event




Earth Hour is a global movement encouraging individuals, communities and businesses to turn off non-essential lights.

Spend this Earth Hour reconnecting with nature and discover a whole different world! We'll hopefully see possums, bats, birds, the odd gecko and other local wildlife out here in the bush.

Our guide will walk with your group through the Sanctuary and using spotlights, you will be able to spot some of our night-time creatures, whilst also learning about what we do and about the animals that live in this area.

FAQs

  • What animals will we see?

We are a true wildlife sanctuary so all animals within the Sanctuary are wild and free to move around; as such, we can not guarantee that you will see any wildlife.

  • How much walking is there?

Your tour will be approx. 1.5 hours and will involve over 1km of walking. Please be aware that your tour will be conducted on unsealed tracks.

  • What do I need to bring?

Please dress appropriately for the weather (eg. appropriate footwear, warm clothes and a spray jacket) and pre-apply mosquito repellent.

  • Do I need a torch?

Your guide will have a spotlight to lead the way and point out any animals you encounter. Please do not bring your own torch.

  • Can children attend this event?

We welcome children to explore the Sanctuary with us. However, please be aware that you will increase your chances of seeing wildlife if the group is quiet as they move around.

  • Can I cancel my tickets?

Refunds are available up to 7 days prior to the event.

  • What happens if it rains?

Wildlife don't tend to mind a little bit of rain, so the tour will go ahead even if light showers are expected. We may cancel the tour in extreme weather conditions (eg. high winds or heavy rainfall); we will contact you directly if this occurs.

  • How can I get in touch with any questions?
