Cape Tribulation will leave shaking their heads in amazement after
having met one of the more fascinating inhabitants of the rainforest -
a flying fox. As rainforest ambassadors, they are unrivalled -
friendly, intelligent and definitely with personality plus.
The Bat House is so named because there is always a flying fox in attendance. These primates are mostly orphans, which for one reason or another have been in captivity too long to be allowed to enter the wild, which must usually occur no later than 6 months after birth.
As part of our Cooperative Management Agreement with the Wet Tropics Management Authority, the Bat House has become an accredited Wet Tropics Visitor Centre.
