Healesville Sanctuary is in the heart of the Yarra Valley and is renowned as the best place to see Australian Native Wildlife. Part of the Zoos Victoria portfolio, Healesville Sanctuary’s mission is to secure a future rich in wildlife by conserving threatened species and connecting people to animals through a uniquely Australian experience that inspires people to take conservation actions.
Explore the beautiful bushland setting and discover the incredible animals that call Healesville Sanctuary home including koalas, kangaroos, wombats, emus, dingoes, birds of prey, platypus, and Tasmanian devils. Visit the Australian Wildlife Health Centre where over 1,500 orphaned, ill, or injured animals are treated every year, and see first-hand how we care for Australian Native Wildlife. Connect with Aboriginal culture as you stroll along the self-guided Wurundjeri Walk and experience emotive soundscapes, ancient scar trees, and a tribute to Indigenous Elder, William Barak.
