Yarra Valley Wildlife Encounters

Animal lovers will be in seventh heaven with the Yarra Valley Wildlife’s ranger-led adventure through the internationally renowned Healesville Sanctuary.

Set in stunning bushland and specialising in native Australian fauna, Acacia will introduce guests to the sanctuary’s dedicated team of rangers. These animal experts will then lead you on a private, two-hour tour of the furry, feathered and scaled wonders on show. You’ll even be able to enjoy exclusive animal encounters all to yourself.

If that’s all too exciting, chill out afterwards and swap wildlife selfies at an indulgent winery lunch at either Ezard at Levantine Hill or Oakridge Wines, two of the Yarra Valley’s most-loved winery restaurants.

After that, the afternoon is all yours to decide with a little help from your Acacia guide. Perhaps an indulgent visit to the scenic Yarra Valley Chocolaterie and Ice Creamery for sweet treats or a wine-tasting at a boutique vineyard, away from the crowds.
