Unfortunately there were no talks and many areas were closed off to the public. I wasn't too upset about that as my aim was to take my partner to see the birds in flight show which I knew was open at 1 and 3pm. We went for a coffee at 2:45 to take to the show but the lady said she had just cleaned the machine :/ No coffee for us. We could have gone to another cafe but didn't want to miss the show. Excitedly arrived at the flight show at 2:50 only to be turned away as they said they were at capacity. I spoke to reception about my dismay but was given 2 coffee vouchers and told there was nothing they could do. So utterly dissapointed. Felt like we deserved a refund. If you want to see a handful of kangaroos and birds, 3 koalas, a couple of tassie devils and one wombat, knock yourself out.

Healesville Sanctuary has one of Australia's best collections of native animals. Visitors can get up close the wildlife, using tracks and boardwalks. Apart from kangaroos, other interesting animals include dingoes, platypus and many indigenous birds. Please note, at time of writing, Healesville Sanctuary was not admiting visitors due to the corona virus lockdown, so please check that the Sanctuary is open before you make the lengthy trip from downtown Melbourne.

It is tricky to get to by public transport, especially if you live on the other side of the city. Still, the trip is definitely worth it. Focused mostly on native animals, and animals that one tends to find around here. Great demonstrations as well. well worth a visit.

While visiting Melbourne last February, we took a day trip out to the Healesville Wildlife Sanctuary. Despite poor weather (intermittent rain and drizzle culminating with a massive downpour just as we were finishing our tour and visit), the Healesville Sanctuary was one of the top highlights of our entire three week trip! At the sanctuary besides many kangaroos, were were fortunate to see many Koalas, Tasmanian Devils, Wombats, Emus, Dingoes, and even a dim Platypus, swimming in a nocturnal pool. Many, many exotic bird species, and other small mammals, marsupials, and rodents were on display - all strange and foreign beasts to people from the Northern Hemisphere. With more time, we could have seen even more, but we had limited time. A full long day would be best in order to see the most af all that Healesville Sanctuary has to offer (but a lot can be seen even with more limited time). The guide/map is very good - well detailed and helpful. Definitely a "MUST-SEE" place!

Nice place to see koalas and other mammals, reptiles and an array of bird life, including many rare and endangered species. One of the few places we actually saw platypus darting about. Another highlight was seeing a Goodfellow's Tree-kangaroo (of New Guinea) with a baby in her pouch. Enjoyed seeing a Dunnart, Bilby, Bush stone Curlew and many different parrots. Educational displays and learn about various breeding programs for conservation. Also rehabilitation of injured animals. The Flight Arena provided an entertaining break from walking. $38 general entry fee. Some enclosures/displays better than others, and like in most zoos the animals don't always come out. I'd be shy of the public too. A good place to show an overseas visitor a broad view of Australian fauna.
