The greatest opportunity to observe some of Australia's most unique wildlife in natural habitat occurs after nightfall. Temperature, rainfall and moonlight all have profound effects on wildlife behaviour. The most ideal conditions occur on the hottest, wettest and darkest nights. By contrast, brightly-moonlit nights in the middle of the cooler, drier periods confer significantly greater challenges.

Discover the nocturnal sights, sounds and movements of the world's oldest rainforest with the custodian of rainforest secrets (flashlights provided).

Combining day and night tours for a better understanding of the nature of the forest is highly recommended. They provide torches specially suited to wildlife spotting.

Similarly, nocturnal tours reveal dimensions of global significance that are invariably hidden during daylight hours.
