For the first time in its 78 year history, Healesville Sanctuary joined with the Lions Club of Healesville to host Carols by Candlelight. Free entry was offered from 5.30pm with most exhibits remaining open and keepers bringing our beautiful animals to mingle with the enthusiastic crowd. Santa came to town, sharing the joy and spirit of Christmas.

The tremendous enthusiasm and unwavering support of the local community, volunteers, staff and crew, as well as a stunning summer's night, ensured Carols by Candlelight was a truly spectacular event.

Healesville Sanctuary wishes all members, visitors and volunteers a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
