Healesville Sanctuary + Dandenong Ranges + Puffing Billy + Penguin Parade

Ever heard of a duck billed platypus? Check out these unique little guys, as well as our favorites - koalas, kangaroos, wombats, dingos and the spectacular ‘Spirit of the Sky’ bird of prey show at Healesville Sanctuary on a scenic and rewarding day trip from Melbourne.

We'll begin as we depart from Melbourne and travel to this amazing wildlife sanctuary to meet a fabulous display of amazing critters. Not only will you encounter famous Aussie residents like koalas and kangaroos, but you can also see the amazing "Spirit of the Sky" show and witness soaring birds of prey and parrots demonstrate their amazing aerial skills.

Don't miss this chance to also visit the Wildlife Hospital and learn how this center helps more than 2000 sick and injured animals each year while also training future veterinarians.

Afterwards, we'll climb aboard the famous Puffing Billy, a century old steam train that will lead us through the Dandenong Ranges and lush Ecualyptus forests!

Then we'll end the day with a trip to Phillip Island to see the world famous Penguin Parade!

We normally return to the meeting point at around 9:30pm.
