We went to the Healesville Sanctuary on a very rainy day. This did not spoil our experience though. There were plenty of Australian native animals to see and learn about. For extra cost, you can take part in encounters with the animals. The platypus display was our favourite exhibit, and we watched these playful delightful creatures for ages. The Spirit of the Sky show runs twice a day and must not be missed, showcasing some of the birds found only in Australia. The sanctuary is well laid out, and there is plenty of signage to find the animals that you would like to see and the amenities. Families, couples, solo travelers and overseas visitors would all enjoy a day out here. There is something for everyone.

There is nothing I can say that is wrong with this Zoo/Sanctuary. The food options are on point. The animals are abundant and happy. The sanctuary itself is large, lush and natural. I would consider this experience ideal for both young children and adults alike. A picnic/BBQ is an options with provided facilities or the option to dine in at either the "Sanctuary Harvest" or Candlebark Cafe. The food options range from a cooked meal/lunch or a simple sandwich with many drinks options. We also did the "not included in general entrance" close encounters (we chose the Kangaroo close-up) and our friend also did a close-up with a Wombat (book more than a day ahead for these as they fill up quickly a day before and definitely on the day). We loved the experience (though quite short at less than 20 mins) but still very enjoyable at the price (between $12 and $20). Overall, we actually did not have enough time to see everything in 1 day and we missed most of the presentations except the dingoes. So in other words, when you go here, there will be MORE than you can do and see in 1 day meaning there is return possibility. Especially if you take pictures and linger at your favourite spots.
