Healesville Sanctuary


Healesville Sanctuary

Explore a bushland haven for Australian wildlife at Healesville Sanctuary, just one hour from Melbourne in the stunning Yarra Valley wine region.

Wander through the tranquil tracks and meet some iconic Australian animals like Koalas, Kangaroos, Platypus, Dingoes, Wombats and Emus in their natural surrounds.

Healesville Sanctuary is internationally renowned around the globe for its work saving endangered Australian species. It is also home to the Australian Wildlife Centre, a hospital which treats more than 2000 sick and injured native animals every year.

Healesville Sanctuary, nestled in the lovely Yarra Valley, offers a closer and more intimate look at many animals than your traditional zoo - set amongst amazing, green surroundings, there's a huge range of Australian fauna and flora to witness here; pat and feed emus and kangaroos, walk inside the excellent bird enclosure and have them land on your shoulders, and even meet some of the newly born baby animals!

All the major Australian species are covered here, including platypus, dingoes, wombats, koalas and much more, and many are showcased during the daily keeper presentations where you'll be able to gain further insight into each amazing creature.

Highlighted by the excellent Birds of Prey show, there's plenty to do at Healesville Sanctuary to keep you occupied for a full day, and it's a destination both families with kids and international visitors are sure to love.

Ideal both as a must-visit if you're staying in the Yarra Valley or for a day trip from Melbourne, Healesville Sanctuary is ideal for those wanting a break from the traditional zoo experience and who want to get far more "hands-on" with their wildlife. If you're wanting to see one of Australia's top native-wildlife-oriented attractions, then book your tickets to Healesville Sanctuary online today.
