B is for Bats

Melbourne was once to be dubbed 'Batmania', after John Batman. But Melbourne's affiliation with bats does not end there. 

Tucked away in Yarra Bend Park in Kew, is a heritage protected site home to Melbournes' largest colony of fruit bats. We recommend heading there for twilight, 8PM during summer and 6PM during the cooler months, to watch these mammals take flight.

Lie back in the grass, or take up a set at one of the decks- and watch one of the true wonders of Melbourne's world.
