It’s warming up and our flying fox friends can be seen out wheeling over Brisbane by night, helping to pollinate native flora. Celebrate the coming summer months with a relaxing boat cruise aboard the MV Neptune along the Brisbane River, scanning the skies for these majestic flying mammals.

Spring into summer and join Wildlife Queensland and Bat Conservation and Rescue Qld on our unique, COVID-compliant Batty Boat Cruise this November.

Interact with orphaned baby bats on board, enjoy the informative live commentary, and be fascinated by Brisbane’s grey-headed, little red and black flying foxes as we cruise to Norman Creek to watch them fly out over the river at sunset. Then, enjoy the twinkling city lights on the cruise back to Brisbane.

Fun for young and old. This truly is a one-of-a-kind experience and best of all, it supports ongoing bat conservation efforts.

When: Sunday 28 November, boarding from 5 pm. The boat departs 5:15 pm and returns 7:45 pm

Where: Cultural Centre Pontoon (50 m upstream from the Victoria Bridge), Southbank. Google ‘Cultural Centre Pontoon’ for directions.

How: Book online.

You’ll enjoy:

  • live commentary
  • meeting and greeting orphan baby bats
  • watching the sunset flyover
  • browsing souvenirs of your trip and buying wildlife books and gifts
  • raffles and prizes
  • a selection of food and drink available on board.
