Spooky Spotlight

Follow our Rangers into the depths of the park just around sunset and find out who wakes up to go out and hunt for food and prey at night.

Meet the nocturnal residents at Centennial Park and learn why they prefer the dark hours of the day and what they do whilst we are out and about.

Watch the spectacular fly out of tens of thousands bats and flying foxes that turns the sky dark and sets the mood for a spooky spotlight prowl.
Please note: This is an educational activity where you learn about the animals of the park. It does not include ghosts, only spiders and bats!

Dress up encouraged!

Meeting point: Robertson Road Gates

  • Enclosed & comfortable shoes
