Yarra Valley Wildlife Encounters

Australia’s unique and loveable wildlife is rightfully a highlight for many visitors to Australian shores. The beautiful Yarra Valley on Melbourne’s doorstep is home to the Healesville Sanctuary, an internationally renowned bushland haven widely recognised as the finest wildlife sanctuary in the nation.  Join one of the sanctuary’s dedicated team of rangers on a two-hour tour of the sanctuary where you will get up close to the most iconic of Australian species, the kangaroo and koala, in an exclusive small group experience offering plenty of opportunities to snap the perfect photo.

The Yarra Valley also offers a diversity of exquisite dining options certain to impress even the most discerning gourmand. Enjoy a sumptuous lunch with estate wine overlooking the vines at a one of the region’s leading vineyard restaurants.

From there it’s all down to your impeccable taste. Taste expressive wines at a leading boutique vineyard, sample artisanal cheese at the Yarra Valley Dairy, or sip awarded gin at Four Pillars Distillery.  Your guide can tailor the perfect afternoon to suit your tastes.
