About The Adventure

If you are ready to see all the characters living right under your noses, join WEA as Tom from HOOKED ON NATURE takes us on a walk to discover the night wildlife. Our personalised tour includes an interactive fact session about the wildlife as we walk through the bush in search of fireflies and many more creatures of the night.

We start our adventure at 6:30 with some nibbles and a glass of bubbles and wait for the Fire Flies to come out and give us a show. We will then take a walk with Tom whose mission is to get people back into nature, and hooked on unlocking the stories of wildlife, plants and fungi. Tom will bring along some of his favourite gadgets (UV Light Traps, Bat Detectors, Live Spiders and Insects and Spot lights) so we can uncover what nature has to offer once the sun goes down in an undisturbed natural environment.

Please note: While every effort is made to provide tour participants with the chance to see fireflies during the tour, certain viewing conditions may not result in fireflies being visible, sometimes they just don't appear.  BUT, we will have an amazing time nevertheless!
