Charm of the native forest on a Tasmanian nocturnal bush safari
Hunt for the fascinating and elusive platypus before travelling to a nearby bush cabin surrounded by native forest.

After Dark Enchantment – featuring Benny’s Bettongs
As the sun goes down, hear the chuckling of kookaburras and take an enchanted walk under the stars for an understanding and appreciation of wildlife movements in the Tasmanian bush. Experience the excitement and magic as nocturnal creatures appear from the bush and trees. Sit beneath the eucalypts and as daylight fades see the strongly arboreal ringtail possums emerge above from their dreys seeking their nightly meal. Wait quietly and the brushtail possums wander past in search of some tasty bush offerings and view the antics of the Tasmanian bettong, the “ecosystem engineers” of the woodlands and a great coloniser of forests destroyed by fire. Follow your guide on a nocturnal walk through local bushland to explore the many nocturnal wonders of Tasmania’s native forest with brushtail possums peering down from high in the trees and hear the bumps of the night as the Bennetts wallabies and pademelons go about their business.
Bookable to complement the Quoll Patrol in a Bushies Wildlife Collection tour.
