Spotlight Prowl Families

Spotlight Prowl Families

Centennial Parklands is home to a variety of nocturnal creatures, from brushtail possums, microbats and tawny frogmouths to one of Sydney’s largest colonies of grey headed flying fox.

Join our experienced Rangers for a fascinating and surprising spotlight walk to see how the Park transforms when the sun goes down.

Dusk is a great time to see wildlife, especially microbats, which we will be using bat detectors to seek out.
