    Get up close and personal with an Australian Bird of Prey! This experience is half an hour in-depth with a keeper and one of the magnificent birds 'on glove'. Become the watched, rather than the watcher in an intimate conversation about the species. Entry to the park is included - a full day of fun!

    Why You'll Love This

    What's Included?

    Healesville Sanctuary is just 70 minutes from Melbourne in the beautiful Yarra Valley. The sanctuary is home to over 200 Australian Native animals and birds, and this experience includes admission to the park allowing you to explore all day.

    There is a 20-minute Birds Of Prey show open to the public, but your very special experience is 30 minutes on top of that. A small group of only 3 others, the keeper and a wonderful bird will converse over the life and habits of the creature.

    There's so much more to explore - The Australian Wildlife Health Center is open daily where we rescue, rehabilitate and release wildlife back to the bush. Explore the Platypusary, home to one of Australia’s most unique mammals or meet the dingoes out for a walk - it's a great Aussie day out!
