Healesville Sanctuary

Animals of the Night

Ever wondered what happens at night in the Australian bush?

Venture into our new-look Nocturnal House and enter the dark and secret world of Mountain Pygmy-possums, Bilbies, Bandicoots, Gliders, Lord Howe Island Stick Insects, and many more mysterious creatures of the night.

Hear the sounds of the Australian bush at night and discover some of our most endangered species including the elusive Numbat!

And just next door to the Nocturnal House is our new Wombat burrow which lets you get face to face with our young wombats in their den!
