Enjoy a short, mainly flat walk to the habitat of small sub populations of nationally endangered southern brown bandicoots (Isoodon obesulus).
Since 2021, experts, volunteers and community organisations have been working to improve this habitat. It shows how to manage introduced plants that are providing protection and food for bandicoots, blackberry in particular, while also encouraging the spread of native raspberry (Rubus parvifolius) and other endemic natives.
We’ll likely find some lovely butterflies and other pollinators along the way.
After the walk, we will have afternoon tea at the Bee Hub, and see an observational bee hive, native bee wall and native resident resin bees, as well as displays about the bandicoot project, and also moths that have visited the Bee Hub Moth Nights.
Cost: $20 full adult; $15 concession; children under 12 years $5.
Parking: Parking will be available in 2 small car parks situated on the left of the road (heading into the valley) one just before and one just after the Bee Hub. The car parks will be marked with balloons.
Wear comfortable walking shoes!
