An opportunity like no other to get up close and personal with the nocturnal critters that call Australia home. Visit a friendly Common Wombat as he wanders out of his burrow, watch as thousands of Grey-headed Flying Fox take to the sky, follow a Krefft’s (Sugar) Glider as it glides through the forest, wave to a Tawny Frogmouth as it stares right at you, and maybe even watch a Powerful Owl as it hoots, soars and hunts – you never know what you’re going to see!

The team at Treeswift have been doing this for more than 10 years, and our guide knew the parks and all its animals almost by name! Very welcoming and encouraging with the best views of sugar glider flying around as he parked the car!

I went on a spotlighting tour with Treeswift last week and had a wonderful time. We started off birding at a small wetland and then went looking for nocturnal critters. Jay, our excellent guide, found us possums and sugar gliders. He pointed out bird calls and the twittering of micro bats, spotted an early tree frog, located several Tawny Frogmouths and explained the habitat and behaviour of the animals we saw. I was most impressed and very happy to find that Treeswift are true to their statement on ethical wildlife watching, but still made sure that everyone in our small group got good views. It was wonderful to finally see a Sugar Glider!
