Animals of the Night

Ever wondered what happens at night in the Australian bush?

Venture into our Nocturnal House and enter the dark and secret world of Mountain Pygmy-possums, Bilbies, Bandicoots, Gliders, and many more mysterious creatures of the night. As so many Australian species are nocturnal you may never have seen these species before - here at the Animals of the Night, they are playing, crawling, feeding and jumping. Hear the sounds of the Australian bush at night and discover some of our most endangered species including the Leadbeater's Possum.

Just next door to the Nocturnal House is our new Wombat burrow which lets you get face to face with our young wombats in their den!

Please note Nocturnal House will be closed temporarily all day this Thursday 14 December 2017.
