Popular tourist attraction Macadamia Castle has unveiled a new attraction that gives visitors an insight into what our native animals get up to at night.
In a specially built 18-seat theatre, visitors can meet the Castle’s resident Tawny Frogmouth , Short Eared Possum, Rufus Bettong, Woma Python and Sugar Glider in a 15-
The shows take place each day at 2pm.
Macadamia Castle owner Tony Gilding said the new show was all about conservation and education.
‘Not a lot of people know what goes on in the bush at night time yet a lot of our animals only come out at night,’ he said.
‘They are a critical part of our biodiversity and the show is all about protecting their habitat and leaving space for them to flourish.
‘What we’ve done with this display is reversed day and night. They sleep during the night and come our and forage during the day and we bring them out at 2pm for the show.
‘Our visitors are introduced to the animals one by one and in most cases they can get to touch them and get a picture with them.
‘It’s a pretty intimate show.’
Mr Gilding said with the challenges presented by the Pacific Highway upgrade, which has resulted in the Castle being off the main highway now, it was important to keep building new attractions to attract visitors.
Macadamia Castle is located just two minutes from the Lennox Head exit on the Pacific Highway.
