Last Thursday was the first Tid by Torchlight tour run by Conservation Volunteer’s Naturewise Conservation Holidays at Tidbinbilla. As it was the first trial run of this tour we got to go along to experience it. It offers a great evening which even includes a bbq at the Visitor Information Centre. The walk itself was pleasant as Tidbinbilla always is. Unfortunately our night didn’t prove fruitful of nocturnal animals but the clear Tidbinbilla sky did provide a perfect view of the Milky Way through the canopy of trees, thus providing my inspiration to create this picture.
