Step back in time and experience Australia's woodlands before clearing and introduced predators took its unique woodland wildlife. Enter the protective predator-proof fence of the sanctuary and watch Echidnas waddle, wildflowers bloom and rare marsupials hop. Mulligans Flat is a sanctuary at the forefront of Australian wildlife conservation. Protecting the largest patch of Box Gum Grassy Woodlands in the world, they work by 'restoring nature, transforming thinking and inspiring action for conservation'. Here locally extinct animals like the Eastern Bettong and Eastern Quoll have been reintroduced to Mulligans Flat, after being absent from mainland Australia for 100 years. It is the only place in Canberra where you can see these critters in the wild. So join in – book a Twilight Tour and help say no to extinction at Mulligans Flat.

We did the twilight tour and it was a magical experience. Great information, lots of wildlife and one of the most pleasant ways to walk around the sanctuary. We saw bettongs, sugar gliders, wallabies and much more.

Saw many adorable eastern bettongs. It felt like such a privilege to be seeing them existing happily in this region. Can't recommend this tour enough!

The Twilight Tour at Mulligans Flat was brilliant! We had a great evening learning about the exciting projects happening in the sanctuary from our passionate and knowledgeable guide. Our guide found bettongs (very exiting!) and sugar gliders for our group. I highly recommend!

A nice place to take a stroll or ride the bike for an hour or two, clears the mind and nice to see woodland instead of brick and concrete.

A great morning in this sanctuary. The birds were a little elusive, but an enjoyable morning nonetheless. Thank you!
