Many people know the region for the iconic Healesville Sanctuary, so you should definitely take the opportunity to visit. The park allows visitors to get up close and personal with more than 200 species of native animals and birdlife. Enjoy ‘Meet the Keeper’ demonstrations and the various wildlife shows (‘Spirits of the Sky’, held twice daily in the flight arena, is very popular). For an extra fee, visitors can also book a ‘Wild Encounter’ with their favourite animal.
There are plenty of other ways for you to get outside and enjoy some of the more natural sights and sounds. Why not pay a visit to the Yarra Ranges National Park (home to Mount Donna Buang – climb to the summit for some amazing views), follow the popular Black Spur drive, explore the Maroondah Reservoir (there are plenty of trails through the park), wander through the Coranderrk Bushland Reserve, or learn about gerberas and alpacas at Big Bouquet?
You cannot visit Healesville without enjoying some of the delicious local produce that the region is so well known for. If wine is your drink of choice, head to one of the many local wineries (including the famous Domaine Chandon). If you’re looking for something a little stronger, the Four Pillars gin distillery is the perfect location (tours and master classes are available). When it comes to food, there are plenty of restaurants using the very best in local produce.
Olden day buffs or those just interested in learning more about the history of the area will actually have plenty of attractions to choose from. The Yarra Valley Tourist Railway, in particular, is worth the visit. Whilst the railway is currently used to connect visitors from Healesville to the picturesque Tarrawarra Winery, you will get to see the countryside in a way that very few do (including the Donovan’s Road overbridge and a historic tunnel).
If you’ve got the kids in tow, we’re sure that keeping them amused is going to be your top priority on any holiday. If you haven’t already come across an activity that tickles their fancy, why not try Hedgend Maze? This attraction is home to a giant hedge maze (don’t forget to try solving all the brain teasers along the way), a rainbow and tangled web maze (which are designed to test your lateral thinking), native maze, mini golf, Frisbee golf and a Fossil Dig.
There are actually a number of artists and studios throughout the region, so drop into a gallery or two if you have the chance. In particular, we recommend: Silvermist Studio, Healesville Glassblowing Studio, Three Stories Artspace, TarraWarra Museum of Art, Mud Glass Metal, the Artists Lounge, and Yarrawonga Open Studios. You never know, you might find a gorgeous piece that you can take home as a souvenir!
