Grade 3-4

Nearest Town: Waihi Beach

Registration Region: Waihi Beach

Duration: 2 hours

Start Time: 7:00pm - Waihi Beach Reservoir Carpark

Cost: Donation requested

Join us near sunset for a short trek up (with plenty of stairs and some steep bits) to the Waihi Beach Trig where we will watch the sun set over our 9km stretch of paradise.  Once darkness has fallen switch on a bat detector to see if we can track down some bats in residence.  Headlamps and torches go on to head carefully back down the track, stopping to say hi to the local glow worms on our way.  Expect to be serenaded by sounds of bubbling water, cicada, bat calls and avian night song.  Maybe event the call of a Morepork or two. 



There are no specific requirements indicated for this trip. However, please read the description carefully and take care to anticipate what you might need for you or your party.
