On a sunny Sunday afternoon, during my first week in Melbourne, my Aunty and Uncle took me and Rosana out to Healesville Sanctuary. We had a lovely afternoon looking around the Sanctuary and getting to see all the Australian Wildlife. I took so many pictures and thought I would share a few with you today. But first let me tell you a little bit more about the Sanctuary.
Healesville Sanctuary is a part of Victoria State’s Zoos project. Situated on Badger Creek Road in Healesville you will go through some beautiful Australian vineyard and bush country to reach the Sanctuary.
Ticket prices are (AUD): Free for under 3 years olds everyday, Free for 4 to 15 years on weekend and during holidays, $13.60 for Monday to Friday outside of holidays, $30.80 for Adults everyday, $23.60 Concession everyday, and $27.70 for Seniors everyday. (As far as I am concerned this is a rather reasonable price to pay to “go to the zoo”.) You can also add-on extras for animal encounters which ranges from $12 (AUD) to $195 (AUD).
Going to a Zoo or Sanctuary while in Australia is a must-do for every visitor as you get to experience Australian wildlife up close. You can’t go to a country and not find out about the animals that are native to it, especially a country like Australia which has such a diversity of amazing animals.
Anyway now it is time for the photos! Enjoy!!!
