Come and Meet 'Digby' the Julia Creek Dunnart Live!
The highlight of ‘Beneath the Creek’ is the nocturnal viewing area for endangered species, the Julia Creek Dunnart. The Julia Creek Dunnart (Sminthopsis douglasi) is a very cute, tiny nocturnal marsupial found only in the Mitchell grass plains of the Shire. Visitors can see the feisty character in action and audio links give an educational background to the lifestyle of the threatened species.
