Healesville is picturesque with plantings to match, as closely as possible the various environments the wildlife lives in. For visitors short of time a visit to Healesville is a guaranteed introduction to the iconic koala. The raised boardwalk places visitors at eye level height to the eucalyptus trees. We are invited to observe a koala meal from the ease of a boardwalk.
Healesville is divided into sections, Main Track, reptiles and amphibians, Woodlands Track, Dingo Track, Wetlands Track with native wildlife birds, Kangaroo Country, Koala Forest and Platypus Track.
The Sanctuary has a well structured school educational programme to encourage participation and interactive learning. Younger members of your group will be kept entertained. The walking tracks are even, wheelchair accessible.
The sanctuary has toilets and cafes dotted throughout the grounds and encourages visitors to picnic in designated areas with food they have brought themselves. There are a number of sessions where the wildlife is introduced to an audience. These sessions, within Healesville are part of the admission fee.
And photograph wildlife to your heart’s content.
The journey is worth it.
