Dawn Chorus / Dusk Chorus

by The Midnight Horrors


Melbourne, 2022

An ethereal guided tour of the birds of The Gardens, twice daily; at dawn and dusk.

Can birds fly upside down? Why do songbirds mimic?
How long until birds are extinct?

Begin or end your day with guides, The Midnight Horrors (Teneille Clerke, Tobias Manderson-Galvin, & Guests) as they lead you on an exploratory tour of the historical inner city estate – home of nearly fifty varieties of birds. There’s no guarantee you’ll see any birds. It may not even be about birds. It may be about the absence of birds.

Binoculars not provided.

NB: There will be low-impact walking through the gardens; please wear appropriate footwear for your own comfort.
