Taking time out to learn more about our natural environment can increase our outdoor enjoyment whilst helping us to become more aware of our personal impact on the world around us.

Generally speaking, botanic gardens are established for research, conservation and education purposes. Maroochy Regional Bushland Botanic Gardens is no different, focussing on the indigenous flora of the Sunshine Coast bioregion, which includes the coastal fringe and hinterland areas.

There are many fauna species that have made their homes in the bushland gardens, while others are fleeting, popping in for a visit throughout the year. Visitors to these spectacular gardens may be lucky enough to spot a koala, find a wallaby, a goanna or even a freshwater turtle in the lagoon.

To expand locals' knowledge and to further enhance visitors enjoyment at visiting the Bushland Botanic Gardens in Tanawha, Friends of Maroochy Regional Bushland Botanic Gardens have regular walking events, sometimes free and in this case at a low cost. As you can imagine, these walks are extremely popular, so early booking is recommended.



🐨 Wildlife at Night Spotlighting Walk
Thursday 15 April | 5.30pm to 8.00pm | $15 per person
This walk is suitable for people aged 16 years and older

Have you ever wondered what may be happening at night in the Botanic Gardens when all the day visitors have gone home? I certainly have and with this in mind, the Wildlife at Night Spotlighting Walk is happening on Thursday evening, the 15 April.

Join ecologists, Alina War and Kieren Aland, as they lead the way to discover what may be out and about at night. Guests will learn effective spotlighting techniques, which will help to find the bright little eyes peeking out from behind the bushes or up in the trees. Once found, Alina and Kieran will help with identifying each animal.
