For one of Australia's best showcases of native Aussie animals, buy your tickets to Healesville Sanctuary located 1 hour to the east of Melbourne CBD. 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.
