Education and events

Flying-fox events are held throughout the year so our community can learn more about this incredibly important species. Keep up to date at or subscribe to Sunshine Coast Council Weekly eNewsletter 


BatPod is a choose your own adventure series for ages 10–15 where you get to call the shots.

We live in one of the most beautiful parts of the planet and we get to share it with some amazing creatures.

Sometimes it can be hard living near them, take flying-foxes for example. These animals are vital to our environment but they can be noisy, smelly and messy neighbours.

You're invited to join Tyron, and our team at Sunshine Coast Council, to try and problem solve ways to live alongside these animals peacefully.
