June 11 - June 13
Healesville Sanctuary is teaming up with Yarra Valley icons to bring you a gourmet experience with a wild difference!
Over the Queen's Birthday long weekend, four pavilions will be showcasing an exciting line-up of local wineries and breweries, along with a hearty winter menu. Sample the finest wines from De Bortoli and Punt Road (to name a few), craft beer and cider from Napoleone, delicious chocolate from Kennedy and Wilson, gourmet cheese tastings and more.
Warm up by roaring open fires and delight your senses with live acoustic music against the backdrop of the Sanctuary's stunning bushland setting. Keepers will also be roaming the grounds with some of our furry, feathered and scaly friends for serendipitous wildlife encounters!
Just a one hour drive from Melbourne CBD through Victoria's beautiful wine country, it's the perfect opportunity to throw on your gumboots, pack the car full of friends and experience winter warmers with a difference!
Tastings are included with general admission to Healesville Sanctuary. Zoos Victoria Members and children under 16 receive free entry all weekend.
