Dusk is a wonderful time to spot animals in Centennial Parklands. The park is home to a variety of nocturnal creatures, from brushtail possums, microbats, and tawny frogmouths to one of Sydney’s largest colonies of grey-headed flying-foxes.

Join our experienced rangers for a fascinating and surprising spotlight walk to see how the park transforms when the sun goes down.

Meeting point: Robertson Road Gates
