Rural and Remote Specials: S12 – Fantastic Flying Fox (Stage 1, Stage 2, Stage 3)
Virtual Excursions Australia is supporting the NSW Department of Education’s Rural Access Gap by providing discounted live virtual events available via DART Learning.
Every night around sunset, a black cloud of thousands of flying foxes leave Centennial Park’s swamp to find food. Did you know that we humans depend on them as they help to spread pollen and seeds? Find out many fascinating facts about these incredible animals and how they help us survive!
Learn more about the habitat provided for the Flying Foxes at Centennial Park, and what we are doing to ensure this vulnerable species thrives here.

Greater Sydney Parklands brings together some of Sydney’s most iconic parks: Centennial Parklands (including Moore Park and Queens Park), Western Sydney Parklands, Parramatta Park, Callan Park and Fernhill Estate.
The priority for Greater Sydney Parklands is to develop new ways to involve Sydneysiders to meet local community needs, and to expand and improve public green space and parklands. In partnership with communities, state and federal government agencies, and local councils, it will champion the NSW Government’s new 50 Year Vision for Sydney’s Open Space and Parklands.
