Flying Fox

Flying Fox Update

Council will recommence a 2-week flying fox dispersal from Tuesday, 31 January 2023 and has again engaged Biodiversity Australia to undertake these activities.

Dispersal will be a combination of loud noise, smoke, and lighting to encourage relocation away from residential areas and the CBD.  This will occur between 4am and 8am each day for a two week period.  

The Biodiversity Team will be highly mobile during this time and there may be some traffic interruptions around the Holliman and Harte Streets area.

We know that this is a slow process and we are asking the public to report any flying fox activity to the dedicated Flying Fox Hotline 1300 319 954.
