Some will be the small insectivorous microbats that you can sometimes see in the wild at nearby Undara and Paronella Park. Others are the larger fruit and nectar eating megabats like the flying foxes. The Visitor Centre experience includes a short video about the work of the hospital, and world-class interpretive signage.... more
Personalised tours operate 3.00 p.m. to 6.00 p.m., Wednesday to Sunday June to September. Watch the afternoon antics of bats during feeding time. Bookings are essential on other days or other times of the year.
