Waikato Museum

Ever wondered what creatures come out at night in Hamilton city? Book into one of our famous Bat Tours and find out!

Join us for an entertaining and informative experience at Waikato Museum, before we go out bat spotting with our bat detectors at Hammond Park. If we’re lucky, we’ll hear the bats or even see them as they hunt for their evening snack.

We'll also explore the boardwalk and keep our eyes open for other nocturnal animals such as glow-worms, eels and moreporks.

Children must be age 5+ and accompanied by an adult.

This event starts at 6pm at Waikato Museum and ends in Hammond Park, Hillcrest at approximately 8.30pm. You will need to provide your own transport to Hammond Park.

Please note: this is an outdoor tour so dress for the weather. Wear suitable outdoor footwear and pack a raincoat just in case.

Bat tours are presented with the kind support of Waikato Regional Council.
