About Bat Hospital Visitor Centre, The

QLD Tourism welcomes Bat Hospital Visitor Centre, The in Atherton, You'll discover wonderful places to visit in Atherton.

Enjoy an intriguing insight into the world of bats. The Bat Hospital Visitor Centre has Advanced Ecotourism accreditation and offers a unique 'up close and personal' wildlife experience just outside Atherton. You will meet some small insectivorous microbats, seen in the wild at nearby Undara and Paronella Park; and the larger fruit and nectar eating megabats like flying foxes. The Visitor Centre experience includes a short video about the work of the hospital, and world-class interpretive signage. Personalised tours operate daily 3-6pm throughout the year, but bookings are essential. The flying foxes live in a six metre high cage and only come down to eye-level at feeding time in the afternoon. Situated on five acres of landscaped gardens, and nestled in a wet sclerophyll/rainforest valley, a visit to the Bat Hospital can also offer a great birding experience. Visit Hastie's Swamp, a fabulous migratory bird wetland just down the road. The Bat Hospital attracts visitors, volunteers and students from around the world, is actively engaged in research and conservation, and has featured in many television documentaries.
