VIP seats at the platypus show, learn about this unique Australian mammal and have a rare face-to-face encounter with the platypus
Lesser known than its fellow Aussie koala, is the platypus, it looks like a cross between a duck, otter and beaver and is unique to Australia. This cute mammal is only one of two mammals in the world who lay eggs. In this rare encounter, you'll have the opportunity to be a platypus keeper with one other person and waddle into the platypus play area to tickle, play and feed them. You'll have exclusive front row seats to the platypus show and afterwards, spend the rest of the day exploring all the other native Australian animals at Healesville Sanctuary as regular admission is included!
