Get a proper introduction to Australia’s fascinating nature on this guided day trip from Melbourne: get up close to some of the country’s rarest animals at Healesville Sanctuary, go for a scenic ride through marvelous landscapes on the Puffing Billy steam train and complete the experience with a penguin encounter. Depart from Melbourne early in the morning and head to the sanctuary specializing in fighting wildlife extinction and see the platypus and other favourites such as koalas, kangaroos, wombats and dingos up close. When there, don’t miss the unrivalled Spirit of the Sky bird of prey and parrot shows. Go on to visit the Wildlife Hospital treating over 2,000 animals a year and explore the training facility for future veterinarians.

  • Zafrina Yuen Yung 7 Jul 2018
    The tour held by Bunyip Tour. Not bad.
  • Tan 1 Jul 2018
    Although the sanctuary trip was a little letdown as most of the animals were in hibernation. the puffing billy was extremely eye opening. Definite recommend! Also shoutout to the tour guide for being friendly.
  • Wai Yan 30 Nov 2018
    The tour guide is very enthusiastic about introducing the attractions, but there is no place and time to eat lunch.

    Klook's voucher has some misleading pick-up time to write an address, timely and indirect location, and wrote the hotel I stayed in. The itinerary is a package to go to the hotel. I am convinced that we stayed at the hotel for half an hour on the day of the hotel pick-up. At first I thought it was some traffic jams and then I called the bunyip tour. I knew that the pick-up location was not the hotel I stayed in. I missed this group tour. Fortunately, the bunyip tour changed us another 🙏🏻 I also have the responsibility the day before. It’s also a responsibility to fight confirmation. But I hope that klook can improve the expression of information and reduce unnecessary misunderstandings.

    The bird show at the zoo is quite exciting, there are many kinds of kangaroos, and nothing else is special. The small train shuttles through the woods, which is beautiful and very artistic! Penguin Island is worth it! The scenery is beautiful, and the hordes of penguins are very cute.
