I have no idea of which species but this bat was active in the area for about 15 minutes.
Video format not supported on your device.
From a number of the frames, you can clearly make out the long tail. This could indicate a freetail bat (Mormopterus spp.) Also seems to be a large microbat.
From the fluttery flight, broad wings and large ears I'd suggest this is much more likely to be a long-eared bat (Nyctophilus sp). Little freetails are nowhere near as maneuverable as that and have much narrower wings - the tip of the tail would be free, but this one is fully enclosed in the tail membrane.
Nyctophilus spp. species id suggested
Not enough resolution to suggest whether N. geoffroyi or N. gouldi. Both are possible in or near the Brisbane Ranges.
Thank you Chris and Lawrie. Your comments certainly made me look closer at the video.
