Did you know that at all sorts of stuff glows in the dark in Australian forests - wildlife, fungi, leaves, it's literally like Avatar out there. It has recently been discovered that some of our mammals also glow under UV light too. Come with us on a virtual tour, your guide, Wendy, will be armed with her UV light, selfie stick, and a smart phone. You will see first hand all the cool stuff that lights up, some of it is bioluminescent (lights up on its own), and some is biofluorescent (lights up with UV light). What we see will depend on the time of year, but we usually see possums, spiders, lichen and fungi.
