Branch Out: Bandicoot Ramble and Amble
Burrow into the fascinating world of the southern brown bandicoot this summer at Cranbourne Gardens.
These bandicoots were once a common sight in south-east Melbourne, however sadly due to habitat destruction, Cranbourne Gardens is now one of their last safe havens. Enjoy an interactive presentation and guided walk to learn more about the biology and history of these native marsupials and how Cranbourne Gardens contributes to their preservation.
The presentation will be held at 11:00AM on Tuesday 18 February. Bookings are essential, so please contact Royal Botanic Gardens Cranbourne on 5990 2200 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
