Wollemi Twilight Wildlife Walk

Exclusive to guests staying in Wolgan Valley!

Duration: 2 hours

Get wild with the night owls as we explore the world of the Wollemi’s nocturnal wildlife.

Readied with spotlights designed especially for use with native wildlife, guests can spotlight for Red-necked Wallaby and the Southern Boobook Owl or become involved in one of our regular citizen science projects surveying Wollemi’s truly unique and diverse wildlife such as the iconic Bare-nosed Wombat.

The Wollemi Twilight Wildlife Walk is a fully guided 2-hour walking tour that is perfect for families and wildlife lovers alike. Led by a passionate and knowledgeable local guide, the walk takes you through some of the best areas of the Wollemi for wildlife watching, where we will get to learn about our region’s native wildlife such as the Eastern Grey kangaroo, Wallaroo, Brush-tailed Possum and if you are very lucky, the threatened Powerful Owl or Greater Glider.

By camp light, stop and enjoy a hot chocolate or mulled wine (non-alcoholic of course), and learn about the Wollemi Wilderness – the largest wilderness area in Eastern Australia, and the efforts by scientists, government agencies and the Wolgan Valley community in its protection.
