Join City of Gold Coast and the team from the Quoll Society of Australia as we take an in-depth look at the Australian mainland’s largest marsupial carnivore, the spotted-tailed quoll.
Once common throughout eastern Australia, spotted-tailed quolls have disappeared from more than 90 per cent of their former range. Like real-life drop bears, quolls are equally at home on the ground or in trees, leaping from branches to take down wallabies up to five times their own size! While quolls are now extremely rare in South East Queensland, there are still occasional sightings from Springbrook and the Lamington plateau, suggesting that the species persists in low densities in the Gold Coast Hinterland.
The Quoll Society of Australia is researching and protecting our amazing quolls throughout southern Queensland. Ongoing projects include monitoring using camera traps, live trapping and GPS tracking quolls in their last Queensland stronghold near Stanthorpe, and revegetating corridors and stepping stones. Come along and learn more about our work, become a Quollunteer, and learn what we can do to coax these highly threatened predators back to the Gold Coast.
