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.

    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.

    The whole day trip is very good. The tour guide is very kind and takes care of the group friends. First pick up the car near the hotel, we were the first group to be picked up, the tour guides took them on time to pick them up, and then started to pick up other group members. The first stop was Healesville Sanctuary. You also saw a very beautiful winery on the way out. This is more like an animal conservation park. There is a small animal hospital in the dressing room. You can see the operating room is wrapped in the face, and in Australia only. This zoo can be seen duck duck animal, or close look! I have visited other zoos in Australia, more like this, because there are not many people, that day the entire animal nursery school probably only our group and several tourists, watching animals is not Forcibly, there are tour guides who will introduce each kind of animal. It is only necessary to pay attention to the fact that the tour guide is a foreigner. The entire journey is in English. If you don't understand it, it is a waste. I only understand certain key words. The others are guessing. Then dine in the restaurant where the dough is wrapped, and there are 3 restaurants to choose from. Then at the appointed time, we will get on the train again and go to the small train. Each group has its own car card. We have about 20 people in one group. We have our own truck, but it is a pity that we received the tour guide two weeks ago because someone Walking out of the accident, so immediately began to forbid the foot out of the small train! The overall journey is very good, the tour guide is very happy to take care of a group of people, so that the entire group of people are very harmonious.

    The English-speaking tour guide in the morning was not enthusiastic. He took out the mobile phone voucher to show him the feeling of direct indifference and he couldn't read Chinese. (Why would the mobile phone certificate be used? And there is also an English mark next to it.) Then we did not care about us. I don't even know his name. The trip is very rich and it's better to have another tour guide. Haha.

    The zoo can see koalas and kangaroo platypus at close range. The steam train has a beautiful view and is suitable for photographing. Overall it is a good experience.
