Doing some wine tasting on a beautiful afternoon is always time well spent, but imagine getting some time with some cute animals too… PERFECT!
Healesville Sanctuary’s Wine & Wildlife festival will return next month to show off Yarra Valley’s finest wines, plus the gorgeous animals that call the zoo home.
Six event spaces will be set up across the park, including the Koala Picnic Lawn and the World of the Platypus with over 25 wine, breweries and hot food stalls to choose from.
While you enjoy a sip of wine or a bite to eat, Healesville’s keepers will be up and about introducing you to some furry and scaly creatures. Definitely worth the drive for both you and your designated driver, or if you all need a break from the roads, shuttle buses are available for the event!
All proceeds from the festival will go towards conservation of 21 local threatened species on the brink of extinction.
Where: Healesville Sanctuary, Badger Creek Road, Healesville
When: 9am-4pm, 9th-11th June (tastings from 11am)
Buy tickets at Healesville Sanctuary’s website.
Catch-up with Fifi, Fev & Byron…
