Event description

Description

Join us for an evening spotlight tour and discover some of Victoria's most threatened species thriving at Mt Rothwell. Only 50 km from Melbourne, Mt Rothwell is the largest feral predator-free ecosystem in Victoria where you can see some of Australia’s most threatened fauna, including the Eastern Barred Bandicoot, Southern Brush-tailed Rock-wallaby and Eastern Quoll. Mt Rothwell was established for the management of high conservation value species breeding and research programs. The centre has a focus on Victorian species with a particular emphasis on species indigenous to the basalt plains grasslands, habitats and woodlands.

This is an all ages event, children must be accompanied by an adult.
