This world-first animal experience allows you to visit the popular Healesville Sanctuary outside Melbourne and get hands-on with a cute platypus! This incredibly cute - and truly unique - mammals are one of Australia's most distinctive wildlife icons, and with a platypus experience at Healesville you'll join the zoo's friendly and informative platypus keeper and be able to enter the Platypus' "play pool" where you'll wade alongside the curious and friendly animals. Taking on the role of a keeper yourself, you'll put on a wading suit, enter the water, and then be able to play with, tickle and even feed one of these gorgeous little friends.

Learning all about the Platypus from the keeper while interacting with them will give you a whole new level of appreciation for these delicate and fragile animals, and with group sizes limited to a maximum of 2 people it's a truly intimate and moving encounter. Add to this the ability to enter Healesville Sanctuary for a full day as part of the experience, and you've got an amazingly unique adventure that's ideal for special occasions or treating you or an animal-loving friend to an unforgettable day out.
