We had a wonderful few hours at Healesville Santuary.
About one hours drive from Melbourne CBD into the country side and lots of fresh air.
Really loved seeing the koalas and kangaroos in their natural habitat, the koalas are incredibly cute. There is an opportunity for photos with them, the roos and snakes.
The platypus show was interesting and entertaining, certainly walk away learning a few facts about the platypus. The sky bird show is also worth watching. Loved the dingos too.
The zoo is very well kept, clean facilities, three cafés to choose from for food and drinks. Great place to take overseas guests as they specialise in Australian native animals.
Also impressed with their wildlife extinction program.
Open 9 to 5pm all year round and lots of parking.
