Mount Etna Caves National Park
Be amazed by the bats at Mount Etna Caves National Park. Join a ranger-guided evening tour of Mount Etna’s Bat Cleft and experience the rush as thousands of little bent-wing bats emerge at dusk from the caves each summer from December to mid-February. Bookings are essential—phone 13 QGOV (13 74 68). Mobile phone charges may apply. The park is also one of the few places in Australia supporting a colony of vulnerable ghost bats.
