Healesville Sanctuary

Tales from Platypus Creek

Think the Platypus is a shy and reclusive creature? Think again! Tales from Platypus Creek lets you see Platypus as they have never been seen before.

Come face-to-face with Healesville Sanctuary’s most iconic species in a world-first interactive Platypus show. Observe Platypus as they interact with keepers, play in the water and even enjoy having their tummies tickled!

Not only will you see Platypus in a unique riverside tank environment in our brand new amphitheatre, but you will also get to meet some of their special animal friends.  You will hear stories of amazing waterway adventures and learn about you can contribute to saving the Platypus’ natural environment.

Tales from Platypus Creek runs twice daily on weekends and once each day during the week. The show is free with general admission and kids under 16 years get free entry to the Sanctuary all school holidays!

This project is co-funded by the Australian Government under T-QUAL grants.
