Description: As the Sun goes down you start the night’s adventure by tasting bush food canapés and drinks on the verandah of Melaleuca House hosted by chef Adam Williams. Our wildlife expert, Tom, will be your guide following the sounds and signs of night time creatures as you venture off to explore Australia’s largest botanic garden in our mini-bus! Many of our animals come out at night and are rarely seen in everyday life. You will be taken into a world where kangaroos and wallabies stand proud, owls will gaze, frogs form choirs and scorpions glow. Together you will solve mysteries by torch light and enjoy an unforgettable, uniquely Australian adventure.
