This printed metal interpretative sign is set at an angle atop a square steel post near the lower car park, near the Amphitheatre, and the toilet block. It has a child-like artistic border around a painting of a Bandicoot, and the following information:

Long-Nosed Bandicoot
Indigenous Name: Burraga
Latin Name: Perameles nasuta

Description: The Long-Nosed Bandicoot is a small animal that looks like a bilby. They are usually grey, black and brown and are about 30-40cm.

Food: The Long-Nosed Bandicoot eats insects and other small invertebrates.

Habitat: They live in burrows or in woodlands so it can be hard for predators, such as foxes, dogs and cats to find them.

Fun Fact: The bandicoots live at Bradleys Head and the Long-Nosed Bandicoot population at North Head is classified as endangered. Please be carful when you are driving. Especially at dusk and dawn when Bandicoots are most active.
