BatReach was established to help preserve Australia's unique wildlife.
Our main area of care is with arboreal animals. This includes bats, possums and gliders, however we do accept any orphaned or injured native animal.
Being part of Far North Queensland Wildlife Rescue, various animals can end up in our care and any that we are unable to cater to are passed onto other experienced carers.
BatReach has a public education facility which is normally open five days a week from 10:30am to 2:30pm. We close Saturday and Monday. We can open for arranged bookings.
Australia has four major species of megabats or flying-fox: the Spectacled, the Black, the Grey-headed and the Little Red.
All of these species are on display during opening hours.
Admission by donation.
We are a volunteer run organisation and receive no goverment funding, we rely soley on your support and the work of our volunteers.
You can Contact Us or the Kuranda Visitor Information Centre to check if we will be open when you visit. For bookings contact us directly.
