Easter Bilby Arts Competition

Bilbies are an endangered Australian marsupial – they are the same size as a bunny and have big ears and a fluffy coat. They live in grasslands and scrublands in the hot and dry areas of western Queensland, the Northern Territory and Western Australia. Sadly they are under threat from mining, land clearing and introduced species. So join our art competition and help us raise awareness for Bilbies in the South Brissie area AND celebrate the fun of Easter eggs
