A must do for the Queen's Birthday Long Weekend
Healesville Sanctuary is teaming up with Yarra Valley icons to host an amazing wildlife and gourmet experience - Wine and Wildlife - over the Queen's Birthday Long Weekend, Saturday 6th June to Monday 8th June, 2015.

Wine and Wildlife
Between the hours of 11am and 4pm, visitors can enjoy wines from De Bortoli Winery and Nolan Wines, mulled cider by Napoleon & Co, a cheese indulgence, and Kennedy & Wilson chocolate tastings, as they cosy up to roaring open fires.

All this is available when you purchase a general admission pass to the zoo, which also allows you to wander through the sanctuary and come close up to wildlife in a beautiful bushland setting. You can also take a seat for Spirits of the Sky or Tales from Platypus Creek show.

Spirits of the Sky

The kids can enjoy a winter wonderland faux snow play and animal interactions as the Healesville Sanctuary Keepers bring their furry, scaly and feathered friends over to say "hello". Kids under 16 years receive free entry over the Queen's Birthday long weekend.

The Sanctuary Harvest Café will feature a delicious, hearty winter menu created exclusively for the Wine and Wildlife long weekend.
