Nature Centre ready for holidays

ANIMALS, great and small, tame and wild, were treated to a variety of delicacies at the Ipswich Nature Centre just in time for Christmas.

Spotted quolls and goannas were among the rare breeds treated to raw chicken legs and fresh fish.

Ipswich Councillor David Morrison said the nature centre was a great place for families to visit, especially during holidays.

It features a range of Australian wildlife, lush gardens and exhibits created to represent our bushland and flora communities.

“Animals in residence include bilbies, kangaroos, wallabies, wombats, dingos, lizards and snakes,” Cr Morrison said.

“You can also walk through the free-flight aviary and get up close and personal with some farm animals in the animal nursery.”

Ipswich Nature Centre is open every day from 9.30am to 4pm.

Admission is free.

A gold coin donation will help to care for the animals and the centre.
