Soak in the breathtaking scenery of Copeland Tops State Conservation Area with your NPWS guides. We'll meander along Copeland Creek as the sun sets over a canopy of red cedar, grey myrtles, shatterwood and other magnificent rainforest species.

Uncover the mysterious wildlife that call this special place their home, including microbats, brush-tail possums and wompoo pigeons. You'll discover what they eat, where they sleep and how they live in this incredibly diverse environment.

If you're lucky, you may even spot some glow worms or fireflies. Fun for all ages, you'll be amazed at what you discover on this twilight adventure.

Please wear fully enclosed footwear and bring insect repellent, drinking water, snacks and a small torch to guide you. The weather in this area can be extreme and unpredictable, so please ensure you're well-prepared for your visit.
