Healesville Sanctuary this Saturday

Another new venture for this year is Saturday outings which we will kick off in style this coming Saturday at Healesville Sanctuary.

Healesville Sanctuary is open from 9.00am to 5.00pm. The total Sanctuary journey is approximately 3km and while an average visit takes three hours, you can easily spend the day. Remember to arrive at the Birds of Prey arena 15 minutes before the scheduled presentation as late entry is not permitted.

Don’t miss the amazing Birds of Prey presentation every day at noon and 2.30pm. It is a free-flying display featuring raptors such as kites, owls and falcons and Australia’s largest – the Wedge-tailed Eagle.

We meet at the front gate at 10am and by the sounds of could easily spend most of the day in there.

There are BBQ facilities available in the picnic areas but whether they are free or not is not made clear on the website. There are also a take-away food cafes and a bistro.

Adults (16 years and over) $24.40
Children (4–15 years, children under 4 years free) $12.10
Adult Concession (16 years and over) $18.50
Seniors Concession $22.00

If you think you might go to any of the three zoos more than two or three times this year it would be worth your while to check out Friends of the Zoos.

The forecast for Saturday at this stage is warm and sunny so bring a hat.
