Owner description: BOOKINGS ESSENTIAL. Enter an upside down world and meet the real stars of the night! Our personalised tours only run during feeding time 3-6pm, when the bats come down to eye level from their 6 metre-high roost. Eclectic collection of bat art , world-class facilities and bat information set among restful gardens. Open all year but bookings essential as tour times vary between 3 and 6pm. Entry $20 adult and $10 children.

Such an interesting place to visit! The staff are extremely friendly and it really opens your eyes about bats. You come out of there with a different opinions on bats and makes you wanna make a difference. Highly recommend it!

The "bat guide" introduced us to the bat guests of this very special hospital.
She was very passionate about her job and very caring about these animals. We were provided much information and interesting facts.
The bats, both the small and the flying foxes, were kind of cute :)
The job that these guys do is really to be appreciated as bats are very important for the ecosystem.
The entrance fee was well worth it, especially because you see with your eyes what it is been used for.
Very much recommended!!!

We found it by accident, picked up a brochure in Yungaburra but had one of the best wildlife experiences ever. The guide was knowledgable and friendly - we came away knowing enormous amounts and with a great respect for these much maligned creatures. Thank you for being in the world.
