Melbourne By Night

Guided Nocturnal Tours


Come and explore the natural wonders of Melbourne after dark by joining Treeswift Wildlife & Nature on one of our guided spotlighting tours! An opportunity like no other to get up close and personal with the nocturnal critters found across the suburbs of Melbourne. Visit a friendly Common Wombat as he wanders out of his burrow, watch as thousands of Grey-headed Flying Fox take off into the sky, follow a Sugar Glider as it glides through a forest, take a selfie with a Tawny Frogmouth, and maybe even watch a Powerful Owl fly through the forest.

Led by an experienced guide/educator, expect superb photographic opportunities and an experience like nothing you’ve seen before! Spots are limited with weekly groups maxed at 4-6 participants, with family or group bookings discounted.

Melbourne By Night tours will conclude with the end of Daylight Saving Time in September 2022. However, if you’d like to book your own private evening, get in contact and we’ll be happy to organise.

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!
