The Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve is home to a wide range of different native animals and fauna that draws crowds from across the nation every year. However, the latest programme in Canberra offers residents of Belconnen real estate the chance to see these creatures in their natural, nighttime habitat – a unique experience that could be wonderful for children and adults alike.
The Tid by Torchlight programme is being organised by Conservation Volunteers Australia, which aims to provide this opportunity for people through to April 2015. Area manager for Australian Capital Territory parks and conservations Mark Read said the award-winning reserve offers rocky terrain and is home to some of Australia's most iconic wildlife.
"Each tour runs for five hours and begins with a dusk wildlife walk and gourmet bush barbecue before venturing into the forest at night, to discover animals you wouldn't normally find. Your guide will walk you through the reserve sanctuary and a spotlight tour of the forest, while teaching you about Australia's native wildlife," said Mr Read in a 24 October statement.
With small, intimate tour groups, this could be a wonderful way to get to see the wide range of local flowers and fauna across the region, offering some insight into the area's natural ecosystem.
