A Special National Science Week Tour

Join a guide for a spotlighting tour chatting everything science this National Science Week.

Experience the sanctuary at night when it comes alive. Learn of the years of research that has been conducted in Mulligans and why we have worked so hard to protect it.

A night tour at Mulligans Flat Woodland Sanctuary is a unique experience to step back in time and experience the Australian bush as it was 100 years ago. At night things really come to life in the Sanctuary. Nocturnal animals awaken hungry and looking for food.

Your guide will take you deep into the Sanctuary, inside the predator-proof fence, where native animals are thriving in the absence of foxes and feral cats.

Get inspired by learning how science is enhancing our understanding and ability to restore these critically endangered woodlands.
