Branch Out: Bandicoot Ramble and Amble

Enter the world of the endangered Southern Brown Bandicoots who live in Cranbourne Gardens.

Burrow into the fascinating world of the Southern Brown Bandicoot with Cranbourne Gardens experts Terry Coates and Charlotte Fletcher. Fifty years ago, these cute critters were a common sight in the south-east of Melbourne but now, due to habitat destruction, Cranbourne Gardens is one of their last safe havens within the suburbs. Enjoy an interactive presentation and guided walk to discover the biology and history of these marsupials and find out how the needs of wildlife and plants are met at Cranbourne Gardens.

This program is presented as part of Branch Out: Experiences in the Gardens for the Over 60s, in partnership with Regis Aged Care.

Bookings are essential.
