Australia: Alice Springs Desert Park at Night

Alice Springs Desert Park is a nature park deducted to fauna of the Australian red middle. One of the things it’s really famous for is the nocturnal tour – you set out well past sunset with red torchlights past three sets of electric fences into a very large natural area of the desert. The fences are to keep nonnative foxes and cats out. Inside, the species that are extinct or nearing extinction elsewhere are living freely. It was like Alice in Wonderland with these bizarre nocturnal marsupials – echidna, bilby, betong, Rufus wallaby, stick nest rat, bandicoot, and several other including a large dragon-like lizard in the tree. Bilbies were best!
