Wildlife & Winery

Wildlife & Winery

Tall mountain ash forests guide us into the spectacular Blue Dandenong Ranges. Travel through the picturesque Yarra Valley to Healesville Sanctuary.

Wildlife encounters is exactly what you will experience at Healesville Sanctuary but not before a generous spit roast winery lunch at Fergusson Winery. To satisfy your sweet tooth, sample some chocolates at Yarra Valley Chocolaterie & Ice Creamery. Then it is on to Healesville Sanctuary, home for over 200 species of Australian birds, mammals and reptiles all set in a natural bushland setting. It is such a delight to walk around! Take a guided tour of Australia’s native animals!
