Healesville Sanctuary, in the heart of the Yarra Valley, is world-renowned as the best place to see Australian wildlife in their natural habitat.

The Sanctuary is 30 hectares of 70 acres of bushland that offers a distinctly Australian setting for visitors to experience unique close-up encounters with some of Australia's unique and endearing wildlife, including koalas, kangaroos, wombats, emus, dingoes, birds of prey and platypus. It is also an ideal place to enjoy the best food and wine the Yarra Valley has to offer.

Do not miss seeing Spirits of the Sky, a free flight presentation featuring Australian raptors such as the Wedge Tailed Eagle, and colourful parrot species. Come face-to-face with Healesville Sanctuary's most iconic species in a world-first interactive Platypus show. Observe Platypus as they interact with keepers, play in the water and even enjoy having their tummies tickled.

Visitors are free to explore the Australian Wildlife Health Centre, a working vetinary hospital treating over 1500 orphaned, ill or injured wildlife every year. The expert team shares the journey of animal rescue, rehabilitation and release with the Sanctuary's visitors.

Healesville Sanctuary is an Australian wildlife experience that centres on local conservation and indigenous culture. Set in a beautiful natural environment, the Sanctuary offers a place for people and animals to reconnect with nature from creek to canopy. Healesville Sanctuary plays a critical role in saving some of the world's most endangered animals.

Children under 16 years of age receive free entry every weekend, during Victorian Government school holidays and on Victorian public holidays.
