Dingos of Healesville Sanctuary



Virtual animal encounters

Sit down and enjoy being transported to Healesville Sanctuary for the Wade with the Platypus or Werribee Open Range Zoo for a Giraffe Encounter!

While the community focuses on looking after people, we’ll keep looking after wildlife - but we need your help.

Live animal cams

Check out the 24/7 live streams or watch the limited-time-only appearances from other special guests. If you missed it, you can catch up on what you missed by clicking back on the red line underneath the video.

Can’t see the animals on the live cams? That’s because our animals live in areas that are much bigger than what a camera can capture.

Resident live streams (running 24/7)

Otters at Melbourne Zoo

Please check back here another time for otter live streaming. You may be wondering where the otters have gone? Not to worry, they've just decided to sleep in their other nesting box! Otters frequently change nests and we're all about choice and control here, so wherever the otters want to sleep, they can! That means that unfortunately live streaming is not available at the moment, however check back soon. As soon as they decide to swap nests again, they'll be back on Animals at Home.

Welcome Paula, Odie and their Asian Small-clawed Otter family to Animals at Home! If you notice things getting a little rough in the den, don't worry, it's just Papa Odie teaching his new pups all about play wrestling!
