Welcome to Bettong Buddies

Welcome to Bettong Buddies, our place to share, inspire and educate people interested in nature and especially woodlands and wetlands. Keep up-to-date with reintroductions of species long-lost from our local woodlands, experience a night tour, become a buddy and join the fun.

Experience nature in a special way – our programs allow you to visit Mulligans Flat Woodland Sanctuary and Jerrabomberra Wetlands in Canberra.

We share live updates from the field, observations, ways for you to get out and get involved, and provide tools for school students to undertake curriculum-targeted practical learning activities: online and in the woodlands and wetlands. Sign up and stay in touch > JOIN US

WHAT SOME OF OUR BUDDIES ARE SAYING


"The Mulligans Flat Woodland Sanctuary is located right on the doorstep of the Canberra suburbs…the Sanctuary offers an abundance of wildlife and views to inspire kids, like the gum trees, grassy glades, birds, kangaroos and other plants and animals in the area" - Shane Rattenbury MLA
"Really enjoyed the experience of being in the reserve at night, seeing the wildlife and the stars" - August 2014 Twilight Tour participant
"The arrival of the Eastern Bettong from Tasmania is a critical first step in returning a locally extinct species to our grassy woodlands." - Simon Corbell MLA
"We are not simply a nation that is preserving our pristine locations, we also want to be a nation that is reclaiming so much of what we have lost" - Mr Tony Burke MP, then Environment Minister, at Mulligans Flat in December 2012
