National Bilby Day in the Scenic Rim

Sunday 10th September, Beaudesert


The lesser billy is already extinct and the greater billy highly endangered.

These endearing animals are being given a chance at Currawinya National Park in southwest Queensland. The day of the first release of captive-red animals  into 25 square kilometre  cat-proof, fox-proof, rabbit-proof enclosure is now celebrated on the second Sunday of September each year.

For. those of you who can’t make it to Charleville (where the main illy-breeding centre is) we are holding a National Bilby Day in Beaudesert from 12.30 to 4.30pm on the 10th of September at the Visitor Information Centre Enterprise Drive Beaudesert.

All ages welcome at this free event
