Join us at the Blue Mountains Botanic Garden for a night time prowl in The Jungle where you'll discover the night time delights unseen by most. The Jungle is a cool temperate rainforest area, home to glider possums and diamond pythons high in the trees and tiny snails hiding under logs. See how many you can spot! After the prowl continue with stargazing where there is nothing between you and the stars! Or discover the birdlife in the mountain environment, then observe their bedtime behaviour and spot any nocturnal creatures coming out for the evening before watching the sunset over the mountains on a balmy afternoon.

As the seasons change in the mountains, so do our activities! You can experience the Gardens in their beauty and exclusively with your group from 5.30pm - 7.30pm. The experiences for you commence as the Gardens are closing to the general public!
Night time prowls- April, May and September. 5.30 - 7.30 pm. The sun will be setting as you arrive, so prepare for some fun in the dark!
Balmy sunset afternoons- March, October and November. 5.30 - 7.30 pm. The sun is getting ready to set while you enjoy the twilight and the beauty of the long afternoon.
Arrive early to enjoy a picnic or snack on the terrace overlooking the greater Blue Mountains vista before your experience. The experience will finish at 7.30pm and the gates will then close.
