What you need to know

Discover the Healesville Sanctuary with the Healesville Sanctuary and Puffing Billy Day Tour Departing From Melbourne. Whether you live in Melbourne or are visiting, Healesville Sanctuary is definitely worth a visit!

Explore Healesville Sanctuary after departing from Melbourne at 8:30am from Melbourne CBD. After roughly an hours drive, explore the unrivalled sanctuary filled with Australia's favourite animals including koalas, kangaroos, wombats, and dingos.

Healesville Sanctuary is also home to the duck-billed platypus, one of only five mammal species that can lay eggs, giving you an up-close and personal experience of a very unique creature! What's even more exciting is the chance to see the 'Spirit of the Sky' bird of prey and parrot show - the birds will show off their skills as they soar and fly above you. Last but not least, the Healesville Sanctuary houses the Wildlife Hospital - where it treats over 2000 sick or injured animals each year - with a training facility and future veterinarians. It's an amazing way to see Australians taking care of our beloved animals!

When the kids are all tuckered out from admiring and getting up close to the animals, take them on the Historical Steam train ride where they can wake up with some wind in their hair!

This is the perfect way to spend the day entertaining and educating the kids. Don't miss out! Book today.
