Join Brisbane City Council's Walk After Dark @ Mt Coot-tha
Ever wondered what occurs in nature after the sun goes down and the night air cools to allow nature's creatures to come out to interact? Well, if this is your curiosity, the Night Adventures: Adults Night Out Mt Coot-tha is just for you.

Hosted and led by the Brisbane City Council's Environment Centres, attendees will explore a three-hundred-metre guided night walk where the wonders of Mt Coot-tha will come alive after dark.

Great idea Susan. I would never contemplate a night walk on my own, but this one sounds most interesting and safe, showing nature in a different light.

This is a great idea. Would have loved to book but sold out by the time I received this article. Hopefully they will consider running further night walks.

Have done some night walks before and what you get to see at night is totally different from day time as far as fauna is concerned. Would highly recommend trying it.
