Stay 3 nights, pay for 2!!
Would you love to see an endangered possum that glides through the trees at night? This package we’ve put together includes your night forest possum experience AND a free night’s accommodation – that’s right, your third night is complimentary.
The Yarra Valley’s forests of giant Mountain Ash are fortunately home to this rare and special Greater Glider. These remarkable possums can glide up to 100m through the treetops and are the largest gliding possums in the world! When you book this 3-night package at The Burrow at Wombat Bend, it comes with the guarantee of seeing a Greater Glider on your private Eco-Adventure Night Walk with a local spotter in the Yarra Ranges National Park. With the brightest eyeshine of any animal in the trees, the greater gliders are distinctive due to their hugely long tails, big ears and extra fluffy fur – and yes, they ARE pretty adorable.
It’s a one-off magical experience, having a local guide who brings the night forest alive and you’ll see/hear Boobook Owls, Sugar Gliders, several species of frogs, insectivorous (micro) bats, sleeping Sulphur-crested Cockatoos, Bare-nosed Wombats, and Black Wallabies.
Nature Lovers Retreat
And a stay at The Burrow at Wombat Bend in Dixons Creek is an absolute retreat for nature lovers, as you’re on the banks of a beautiful billabong teeming with birdlife and surrounded by native trees, shrubs, and resident wildlife. This Land for Wildlife sanctuary lives up to its name and your hosts Sue and Bill will show you the best places to spot their own resident wildlife. We all know that a 2-night stay never feels long enough – so we’re throwing in a 3rd night for free, so you leave feeling fully and properly rested.
