A very full and enthralling day, starting with Australian wildlife and finishing with fine food and wine. Visit the world-famous Healesville Sanctuary, one of Australia's most recognised and acclaimed native wildlife sanctuaries.
Set amidst 30 hectares of bushland, it showcases more than 200 species of Australian wildlife in a distinctly Australian setting. Some of Australia's most unique and captivating wildlife can be observed in their natural habitat, including koalas, kangaroos, wombats, emus, dingoes and platypus.
You will then travel to Victoria's first vineyard, Yering Station, for lunch in their stunning Wine Bar Restaurant.
